buffaloes were divided into five groups’ viz. four treated and
one control group. The treated groups received Ashwagandha,
Vitamin E, Selenium, Copper and Zinc in different combinations.
Animals of group IV (provided with 50 gm of Ashwagandha and 500
IU Vitamin E, 800 mg zinc methionine, 250 mg copper sulphate and
5 mg of selenium) showed highest recovery (80.00%) with an
average post treatment CMT score point 1.53+0.75, as
compared to rest of the treated groups. Supplementation of trace
minerals is only required at low levels to improve immune
functions such as decreasing the incidence of mastitis.
