The present experiment was carried out on thirty-two pregnant Karan Fries (KF) cows. In control group, cows were fed basal diet. In T1 each cow was fed rumen protected choline (RPC) (55g/day), in T2 - green tea extract (GTE) (3g/day) and in T3- RPC + GTE (55+3g/day) along with basal diet. The treatment was given 30 days before calving to 60 days after calving. No significant (P≥0.05) difference was observed among the groups for somatic cell count. The concentration of total immunoglobulin concentration increased significantly (P≤0.01) in T1, T2 and T3 as compared to control. Serum level of TBARS (P<0.01) and TAC reduced significantly (P≤0.05) in T1, T2 and T3 as compared to control from 7th day to 30th day of parturition. In conclusion, feeding of RPC and GTE in combination improved immune status and alleviated oxidative stress during transition period in Karan Fries cows.
