Present study was designed with a dual aim of ascertaining the follicular population of goat ovaries and to obtain total antioxidant status by screening the blood collected before slaughter and follicular fluid collected from ovaries after slaughter. Samples (blood and reproductive tracts) of the goats were collected from a local abattoir located in Jammu city. The reproductive tracts were divided into two groups viz. cyclic and acyclic depending on the presence or absence of corpus luteum or corpus haemorrhagicum and size of surface follicles on the ovary. The study revealed a significant (P < 0.05) difference between cyclic and acyclic goats when compared on the basis of number of medium and large surface follicles, however, the number of small follicles didnít differ significantly (P > 0.05). Activity of superoxide dismutase, catalase, lipid peroxidase and glutathione-s-transferase revealed a considerable although non-significant (P > 0.05) difference between cyclic and acyclic goats in follicular fluid indicating a role of these enzymatic antioxidants in the maintenance of cyclicity in goats.

Key words: Follicular Population, Antioxidant Status, Ovaries, Cyclicity, Goats
