Kangeyam cattle are a draught breed native cattle of Tamilnadu, India. They are well known for their draught power and endurance. The aim of this study is to establish a normal haematological and biochemical values for lactating kangeyam cows. Blood samples were collected from 3 – 4 year old lactating kangeyam cows present in the native tracts of Erode district. Blood samples are used for estimation of haematological parameters like haemoglobin, packed cell volume, red blood cells count, erythrocyte indices, total leukocyte count, platelet count and biochemical parameters like blood urea nitrogen, creatinine, total protein, albumin, aspartate transaminase, glucose, cholesterol, calcium, phosphorous, magnesium, sodium, potassium and chloride. The haematological and biochemical parameters were estimated, statistically analysed and they were in the normal range. It was concluded that these can be used as reference values for lactating kangeyam cattle and also as a baseline data for assessing the managemental practice, physiological status, nutritional deficiency and various diseases of these kangeyam animals.
