The aim of the study was to find the levels of serum ionized calcium and some macro-minerals during peripartum period in Berari goat. Twelve advanced pregnant Berari goats were used for the study. Blood samples were collected on -14 day and -7 day before expected date of kidding and subsequently on the day of kidding (0th day), 7th, 14th and 21th day postpartum. Serum samples were collected for estimation of ionized calcium (iCa), total calcium, phosphorous and magnesium. Serum ionized calcium increased significantly from the day of kidding through 7th, 14th and 21st day postpartum with mean reference range of 4.19 ±0.18 to 4.89±0.16 mg/dl during peripartum period in Berari goat. These values are almost half of the value reported for total calcium. Serum total calcium shown increasing trend through day 14th, 7th prepartum, day of kidding (0th day), 7th, 14th and 21st postpartum. Serum Phosphorus has shown increasing trend during entire peripartum period. While Magnesium has shown lowest value on 7th day postpartum without any specific trend. There was significant (p
