Abstract


Effect of varying load on pack performance of yak was studied. Immediately after exercise, the values for all clinical parameters of animals carrying 30% load were significantly higher than 10 and 20% load groups and recovery tiIne was maximum in animals carrying 30% load. However, in general, no sign of fatigue was observed in any of the groups. The haematological parameters varied nonsignificantly and 35 min post-exercise the values of these haematological parameters reached to almost pre-exercise values in all the groups. On the basis of present study, it could be concluded that there was no adverse effect of load (up to 30%) on physiological performance of yaks.
