Abstract
The objective of the study was to evaluate the effects of lactation on the lipid profile of Yankasa sheep. A total of 10 ewes were used for the study, 5 lactating and 5 nonlactating. The parameters evaluated included total cholesterol, triglycerides, high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol. The results indicate significantly lower mean values of total cholesterol and triglycerides in lactating ewes compared to non-lactating ewes (P< 0.05). The mean values of high-density lipoprotein cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol were similar for both groups. Understanding the dynamics of lipid profile during lactation is important in providing guidelines to guarantee the metabolic needs of lactating animals and reduce the incidence of metabolic diseases.
