Further improvement of approaches to breeding and raising cattle is possible with reliance on continuously collected information about its physiology at any age. Their active use in practice is already yielding positive results on the intensification of cattle breeding in different countries of the world. Unfortunately, still not all farms manage to provide optimum housing and feeding for pregnant cows. For this reason, it is still not uncommon for newborn calves to show signs of iron deficiency. In this work, the use of ferroglucin in 38 newborn calves with iron deficiency achieved an improvement in their general condition, normalization of serum iron levels, a slight increase in plasma antioxidant protection levels and a decrease in the intensity of lipid peroxidation in it. Excessive hemocoagulation and platelet activity and reduced hemostatic properties of the vascular wall in the outcome of these calves experienced some positive dynamics against the background of the use of ferroglucin. The weakness of the achieved dynamics of the indicators taken into account indicated the preservation of hemostatic disorders in animals that received ferroglucin, and their risk of microthrombosis, which can slow down their growth and development.
