Researches performed on hematological parameters of blood reflects the adaptability of animals to adverse environmental conditions, to different stress factors influence.
Physiological responses of the animal organism reflects how the welfare indicators are accomplished, indicators that are implicated to obtaining a superior quality of meat.
To characterize the hematological profile were collected blood samples from the jugular vein of the cattle that were randomly selected from the slaughter house paddock.
Determination of red blood cell (RBC, Hb, Ht, MCV, MCH, MCHC) and the white ones (WBC, Lym, Mon, N, Eosin, Baz) were made using the automatic analyzer ABX Micros Vet. So, it was possible to make comparisons with data from literature and framing them with existing normal values for cattle species.
This study may contribute to the establishment and improvement of rest time effects on cattle that are transported to the slaughterhouse by adjusting the imbalances that occur in blood levels.
