Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Thyroid function was studied by estimating of plasma-protein-bound iodine (PBI), in buffaloes, from 0 to 57 days postpartum. PBI values (microgram/100 ml) were lowest on day 1 postpartum, followed by a gradual increase by day 57. The values were consistently lower (P less than 0.01) during summer (3.79 +/- 0.13 micrograms/100 ml), as compared to winter (5.06 +/- 0.27). A lower value (P less than 0.01) was obtained in animals requiring less than 30 days (3.53 +/- 0.45) or more than 30 days (4.88 +/- 0.27) for uterine involution. The values were 4.56 +/- 0.13, 5.03 +/- 0.68 and 2.72 +/- 0.50 in animals requiring less than 25, 25-50 and more than 50 days for initiation of follicular development (P less than 0.01). Similarly the values were 4.95 +/- 0.38, 3.95 +/- 0.45 and 4.03 +/- 0.59 in buffaloes having postpartum oestrus intervals less than 45, 45-90, and more than 90 days (P less than 0.01). Higher values (P less than 0.05) were obtained in conceiving (4.55 +/- 0.41), as compared to non-conceiving animals (4.21 +/- 0.31). It can be concluded that the thyroid function is depressed during summer and in poorly reproducing buffaloes.
