The study was carried out on 20 Surti buffaloes during their transient period maintained at the Livestock Research Station, Navsari Agricultural University, Navsari, Gujarat. These animals were divided into two groups of ten each. Buffaloes of group-I were treated with Inj. Vitamin E and Selenium (E-CARE Se) on 60th, 45th, 30thand 15thday before expected date of parturition and after parturition on 15th, 30thday, while buffaloes of group-II were treated with Inj. Normal Saline as placebo treatment IM. Blood samples were collected on similar days before injection as well as on the day of parturition, 45th and 60th days postpartum. The mean serum progesterone concentration did not differ significantly (p>0.05) at different days/phases interval in between treatment and control groups. The overall (before parturition) mean serum progesterone in the treatment group were non-significantly (p>0.05) higher as compared to control group but overall (after parturition) it was found non-significantly (p>0.05) lower in treatment group as compared to control group, respectively. Similarly, the mean serum progesterone did not differ significantly (p>0.05) in between pregnant &non-pregnant groups at different days interval except at 15th day after parturition it was significantly (p<0.05) lower in pregnant group as compared to non-pregnant group of Surti buffaloes, respectively.
