The need to intensify milk production urgently dictates the need to continue research on the physiology of cattle of any age. It is customary to attach great importance to blood, consisting of uniform elements and plasma, constantly circulating through the vessels. It provides gas exchange, metabolism and the delivery of hormones and bioregulators in their tissues. The success of hemocirculation strongly determines the completeness of the realization of the genetic growth potential and productivity of the animal and is closely related to the activity of aggregation of blood cells. Purpose: to find out the activity of aggregation of the main formed elements of the blood in newborn calves. The work was carried out on 32 newborn calves of black-motley breed, born of healthy cows after 2–3 pregnancies. The calves were examined on 1–2, 3–4, 5–6, 7–8 and 9–10 days of life. In the work, hematological and statistical research methods are applied. For newborns in calves, a tendency towards increased aggregation activity of red blood cells was revealed. This was combined with a low platelet aggregation, which tended to increase. The low aggregation of neutrophils in these calves also gradually increased. In newborn calves of optimal physiological status, there is a tendency to increase the aggregation of the main formed elements of the blood, which is a response to environmental influences.
