Abstract: The current experiment was carried out at Livestock Farm Complex (LFC), College of Veterinary Science & Animal Husbandry, Rewa (M.P.) to study the effect of rearing system i.e. Grazing Versus Stall Feeding System on Blood Biochemical profile of Sirohi Goats. Twenty four Sirohi goat kids around 3-4 months age of either sex with uniform body size and weight were selected. They are randomly divided into two groups (group 01 and group 02) of equal number (12 each). Deworming and vaccination carried out routinely as per schedule. Pre adoption period of 15 days was given to all kids before starting research work. The kids were selected for the experiment was free from physiological, anatomical and infectious diseases. Group 01 allowed to rear on complete stall feeding with supplementation of commercial concentrate ration while Group 02 allowed browsing around farm premises. Kids were allowed to feed 2% commercial readymade concentrate feed procured containing (20% protein and ME 2240 kcal/kg) on Dry matter basis and 2% as greens (daily 6 hours grazing). Blood samples was collected at first day (day 0) and last day (day 365) of experiment to estimate the Total erythrocyte count (RBCs), Total leukocyte count (WBCs), Differential leukocytes counts (DLC), Estimation of Haemoglobin (Hb), Packed cell volume (PCV), Aspartate amino transferase (AST)/ SGOT, Alanine amino transferase (ALT)/ SGPT, Blood glucose, Total Protein, Cholesterol. It was found that the system of rearing i.e. Grazing and Stall feeding didn’t affect the blood biochemical (total erythrocyte count (million/mm3), TLC(thousand/mm3), Neutrophil (%), Lymphocyte (%), Monocyte (%), Eosinophil (%), Haemoglobin (Hb) (g/dl), PCV Packed cell volume (%), SGOT/AST (U/L), SGPT/ ALT (U/L), Blood glucose (mg/dl), Total protein (g/dl) and Cholesterol (mg/dl) and all these are within normal physiological range.
