Present study was conducted to evaluate the effect of herbal feed supplement shatavari (Asparagus racemosus) in terms of certain blood mineral profile of crossbred cows. The cows were divided in four groups. Group G1 was control group, in which the animals receive experimental feed without any other feed supplements, whereas the animals of experimental group 2 (G2), group 3 (G3) and group 4 (G4) were fed a similar feed along with shatavari root powder 40 gm, 80 gm and 120 gm respectively. The study was conducted for a period of 60 days including 7 days digestibility trial. Statistical analysis of average serum calcium data revealed non-significant effect due to supplementation of herb shatavari. Significant (P≤0.05) effect on serum phosphorus and highly significant (P≤0.01) effect on magnesium was observed. Statistical analysis of data revealed highly significant (P≤0.01) effect on zinc and copper also due to supplementation of herb shatavari.
