Biochemical studies reflect nutritive and reproductive status of farm animals. Hence, a study was undertaken to record blood biochemical profile in cyclic and non cyclic local buffaloes. The animals carrying various reproductive stages were selected from local area of Parbhani district of Maharashtra State and animals belonging to local or non descript breeds of buffaloes were grouped as cyclic and non cyclic category with each group consisting of twenty buffaloes. The serum samples were collected and analysed with clinical analyser by adopting standard methodology. The average values of biochemical constituents viz, Serum Calcium, Phosphorus, Total serum protein, Albumin, Globulin, A: G Ratio, Glucose and Cholesterol were 9.775 mg/dl, 6.380 mg/dl,7.165 g/dl, 4.342 g/dl, 2.795 g/dl, 1.705, 55.962 mg/dl and 107.565 mg/dl in cyclic buffaloes and the same were 9.676 mg/dl, 5.775mg/dl, 6.771g/dl, 3.035g/dl, 3.770 g/dl, 0.875, 49.195 mg/dl and 94.021mg/dl in non cyclic local buffaloes, respectively. Amongst the blood biochemical constituents, Serum Calcium, Serum phosphorus and Total serum protein did not differ non significantly in cyclic and non cyclic buffaloes, whereas Serum albumin (P<0.01), Serum globulin(P<0.05), A: G Ratio (P<0.01), Serum glucose (P<0.05) and Serum cholesterol(P<0.05) differed significantly in cyclic and non cyclic buffaloes. The lower serum albumin level among the non cyclic buffaloes might be due to difference in feeding practices. The infection of reproductive tract like that of metritis in non cyclic local buffaloes was related with higher serum globulin. The triggered immunoglobulin causes higher concentration of globulin in non cyclic buffaloes. The higher A: G Ratio values among the cyclic local buffaloes might be due to higher values of serum albumin. The continued cyclicity in cyclic local buffaloes was evidenced by high concentration of glucose. The anoestrous condition in non cyclic local buffaloes was apparent as serum cholesterol levels were on lower side. Thus, it was concluded that blood biochemical analysis interprets reproductive status and indicates chances of fertility in local buffaloes.
