Reproductive performance is one of the important factors which determine the profitability of the dairy farmers. To explore the metabolic status, blood chemistry is a vital diagnostic aid for reproductive deficiency diseases. High incidence of repeat-breeding and anoestrous are associated with the deficiencies of glucose, protein, albumin and globulin. The study was aimed at examining biochemical parameters in crossbred cows during Double PGF2α protocol. Blood glucose levels during Double PGF2α protocol were not significantly different (P>0.05) within group. On the day of induced estrus, the mean total protein concentration increased significantly (P<0.05) from 7.25 ± 0.29 to 8.51±0.41 g/dl. The effect of a low level intake of protein on reproduction may be due to reduced intake of feed resulting in a delay in estrus and thus delay in the onset of estrus cycle. On the day of induced estrus, there was increase in the mean phosphorus value (6.43±0.52 mg/dl) than the 0 day value (5.98±0.88 mg/dl) and significant difference (P<0.05) was found within groups. Thus, the present investigation reveals that biochemical parameters can be an important tool for the assessment of reproductive pattern in crossbred cows.
