Forty five extensively reared pregnant Ganjam does were randomly distributed into three treatment groups (T1, T2, T3), 15 in each for evaluating the effect of late pregnancy allowances to them on haemato-biochemical profiles of their kids. All the does were maintained on browsing besides additional concentrate supplementation @ 200 g /day and @ 300 g/day in T2 and T3, respectively. Additional allowances were fed to the treatment groups 2 months prior to the expected date of kidding. Immediate after kidding, blood samples were collected from the day old kids for analysis of hemoglobin, PCV, TEC, MCV, MCH, MCHC, TLC, serum glucose, urea, total protein, albumin, globulin, A:G, cholesterol, triglyceride, urea and creatinine. The lambs in T2 and T3showed significantly (P<0.05) higher haemoglobin (g/dl) (T2: 9.95 ± 0.18; T3: 9.84 ± 0.30) and PCV % (T2: 29.59 ± 1.16; T3: 29.04 ± 1.32) than those in T1 group. Other haematological parameters remained statistically similar (P>0.05) between groups. Significant differences (P<0.05) were observed for serum glucose in T2 (56.94 ± 1.46 mg/dl) and T3 (55.99 ± 1.32mg/dl)as compared to T1 (49.82 ±2.16 mg/dl).For both total protein and albumin (g/dl), T2 (8.59 ± 0.06 and 4.34 ± 0.04) and T3 (8.97 ± 0.04 and 4.66 ± 0.08) showed significantly (P<0.05) higher value than T1 (7.15 ±0.04 and 3.14 ±0.11) while serum globulin remained statistically similar between groups. Other Serum biochemical parameters were found to be non significant (P>0.05) among groups. It was concluded that late pregnancy allowances @ 200 g/day/doe in extensively reared does is required to maintain the glucose and protein level in day old kids, may help for their further growth.
