Amal Nouri Awad and Mohamed Ahmed Shwayel.


The current study has conducted the effect of adding cumin cyminym seeds to concentrated feed on some blood biochemical parameters of black local goats. Fifteen female black goats aged 3 years, third milk production season. The study was in a private animal field of the Department of Animal Production- College of Agriculture/ University of Diyala, during the period from 1/11/2018 to 16/4/2019. The goats were divided randomly into three equal groups, 5 for each group. The first group (T1) left without treatment as a control group. The second group (T2) was given 10 g of cumin seed powder to the concentrated feed/ animal per day. The third group (T3) was given 20 g of cumin seed powder to the concentrated feed/ animal per day. Blood samples were collected before the experiment (Zero day) and at the end of the experiment (3 months), 10 ml from the jugular vein by via vacationer tubes without anticoagulant. Blood biochemical parameters were also estimated including: Total protein, Albumin, Globulin, Glucose, Urea and Triglycerides. The results showed no significant (P>0.05) in Total protein, Albumin, Globulin, Glucose, Urea and Triglycerides between (Zero days) and at the end of the experiment (3 months) and between different treated groups during the study period. It was concluded from this study that addition of cumin seed powder to the black local goat ration has no effects on some blood biochemical parameters.

Key words: Goats, Cumin Seeds, Blood Biochemical Parameters.
