The study was conducted on male (1 wk to 12 m age) and female (1 wk to 36 m age) Gir cattle and Jaffarabadi buffaloes maintained on an organised farm. Age exerted significant (P < 0.05) effect on AST, ALT and LDH activity in both the sexes of Gir and Jaffarabadi breed. AST values in adult Gir females at 24 and 36 m age were lesser than the values observed at 1 wk of age. The increase in AST as age increased was noted in Gir males. The effect of age on AST levels in Jaffarabadi females and males was found to be significant (P < 0.05), with no definite pattern of increase or decrease as the age advanced. The activity of ALT increased as age advanced upto 12 m age in both males and females of Gir and in females of Jaffarabadi. Higher LDH activity was found in Jaffarabadi females as compared to Gir females at 24 m age. The levels in male Gir was significantly (P < 0.05) higher at 1 wk, 1 and 3 m whereas it was significantly (P < 0.05) lower at 6 and 12 m age as compared to the corresponding levels in Jaffarabadi males. Higher AST and ALT activity was observed in Jaffarabadi buffaloes as compared to Gir cattle at all ages whereas the LDH showed higher activity in Gir cattle as compared to Jaffarabadi buffaloes.
