Abstract
Dry period (DP) length affects energy metabolism in transition period as well as milk production in the subsequent lactation. The aim of the study was to investigate the serum glucose (SG) and altered glucose percentage (AGP) levels in forty eight dairy buffaloes allotted to three dry period lengths (> 60 d; 46 to 60 d; and 30 to 45 d). The serum glucose (SG) and altered glucose percentage (AGP) levels were influenced by both length of dry period, and pre and postpartum periods of the entire experimental study. SG levels in prepartum period were higher (P

Key words: Dry period length, serum glucose concentration, Murrah Buffaloes, 6% FCM
