This experiment was performed to study haematological and some biochemical parameters of Maraz male and female goats. Blood samples were obtained via the jugular vein from 5 male and 23 female goats (1-4 years of age). The blood sample of each animal was analyzed to obtain the total erythrocyte count, haemoglobin concentration, leukocyte counts and differential leukocyte counts. In addition, serum total protein, albumin, globulin, glucose, blood urea nitrogen, total cholesterol, LDL, HDL, VLDL and triglyceride concentrations were determined. Serum AST, ALT and ALP levels were also detected. The results obtained from this study could serve as reference values for Maraz goats breeding in Kurdistan region of Iraq.
