Zinc deficiency in cattle

Indian Journal of Animal Sciences 64(1): 34-40
Zinc deficiency in cattle
A primary nutritional zinc deficiency was studied in and around Bikaner under famine conditions in 1988. The overall mean blood serum zinc level was 58.4 +- 34.89 (range 14.9 to 183.7 mu-g/100 ml). Clinically primary nutritional zinc deficiency showed poor body condition, dull appearance, lowered appetite, low production and low reproduction. In addition to these symptoms there was alopecia and hyperkeratosis of skin. Hematological parameters recorded in deficient animals at pre-treatment stage did not exhibit any significant change after the animals were treated. Histopathological examinations revealed excessive keratinization of stratum corneum and acanthosis with elongation of retenets. Administration of 2 g zinc sulphate orally as well as 1 g zinc sulphate parenterally was an effective treatment.
