Abstract: Different levels of Vanadium were used to assess the effect on antioxidant status of Barbari goat kids. A total number of 21 barbari goat kids with body weight (BW) of 16.27 ±0.89 kg were selected for 90 day experimental trial. Kids were randomly allocated into 3 treatments. The treatments were as follows: 1) Control comprised of total mixed ration (TMR) without any supplementation of vanadium; 2) T1 group was provided TMR basal diet with vanadium @ 1.5 mg/kg DM/kids/day); 3) T2 group were supplemented TMR basal diet with vanadium @3.0 mg/kg DM/kids/day. Total antioxidant status was recorded higher significant (p<0.05) in T2 than control and T1 groups. The levels of superoxide dismutase in the different groups changed significantly (p<0.05). Catalase was statistically higher in both the vanadium supplemented groups. Thiobarbituric acid reactive substance was lesser in T1 and T2 as compared control group. The study accomplished that the dietary fed of vanadium elevated the antioxidant status of Barbari kids.
