Abstract

Hypocuprosis was achieved in 13 buffalo calves by administering varying closes of ammonium molybdate. The mean plasma and hair copper levels were 1.15±0.10 and 8.28±0.38ppm respectively. MO induced hypocuprosis resulted in significant increase in plasma Cu concentration ( 1.43±0.18PPM) associated with decline in hair (6.02±0.22ppm) and liver (22.59±10.01 ppm) Cu levels. Besides, increased Fe, phosphorus and decreased zinc concerltration are also observed. The Mo concentration in the plasma, hair and lives revealed a significant increase throughout the period of induction. Ca, Mg, Mn, K and S did not reveal any significant alteration.
