The objective of the study was to estimate neutrophil and TLC in blood and neutrophil in colostrums after feeding micronutrients formulation to kankrej cows. The experimental treatments included four groups of animals as control, supplemented copper, supplemented zinc and supplemented with combination of copper and zinc. Maximum increase in blood neutrophils percentage, TLC and neutrophils percentage in colostrums was found in control cows as compared to the supplemented cows. Blood neutrophils percentage, TLC and neutrophils percentage in colostrums differed significantly (P≤0.01) between groups as well as between different days of peripartum period, day of calving and post-partum days. The interaction effect of group x days on cows of various group was observed non-significant for these traits.
