Abstract

Twenty four male Awassi lambs aged 3.5-4 months were assigned into four main treatment groups .The 1st treatment was fed on control ration only, while 2nd,3rd and 4th treatments were fed ad libitum on control ration and supplemented with 600 mg/kg.B.W. /day of black cumin or fenugreek or rocket seeds respectively, for four months.The blood samples were collected to measurement the activities of ALT, AST and ALP enzymes and Triiodothyronine,Thyroxin and Testosterone hormones.The Results indicated that activities of ALT and AST enzymes were increased significantly(P≤0.05) in T2 and T3,respectively,while the activity of ALP enzyme was increased significantly(P≤0.05) in T4 as compared to those in T1. The activities of Triiodothyronine and Thyroxin hormones were increased significantly(P≤0.05) in T2 ,T3 and T4, respectively, also the activity of Testosterone hormone was increased significantly(P≤0.05) in T2 and T4 ,respectively, as compared to those in T1.Also the activities of ALT, ALP and Testosterone were increased significantly (P≤0.05), while the activities of Triiodothyronine and Thyroxin was decreased significantly (P≤0.05) as lambs get older. The present study was carried out to determine the effect of supplementation of black cumin or fenugreek or rocket seeds to the rations on the activity of some enzymes and hormones in blood of male Awassi lambs.
