Concentrations of some elements in the blood serum of Angora goats
The aim of the study was to determine serum essential trace, macro and industrial element levels of Angora goats according to breed and age differences. Clinically healthy (ages 2-3 and 4-5) female Angora goats of two different breeds (Eskisehir and Lalahan) were used as material at the Lalahan Livestock Research Institute. Serum aluminum (Al), arsenic (As), boron (B), barium (Ba), cobalt (Co), chromium (Cr), copper (Cu), gallium (Ga), indium (In), lead (Pb), lithium (Li), nickel (Ni), selenium (Se), silver (Ag), sulfur (S), strontium (Sr), vanadium (V) and zinc (Zn) were measured with an ICP-OES plasma optical atomic emission spectrometer. There were no statistically significant differences found in the different breeds and age groups
