Neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio is used to analyse stress levels before the method of measuring glucocorticoid levels in blood plasma exists. The study aims to determine the neutrophil to lymphocyte (N/L) ratio in Sapera goats during a clinically normal gestation and lactation period. The samples were obtained from 12 Sapera goats in three-month gestation period and 12 Sapera goats in three-month lactation period. Blood samples taken via jugular veins were used as the preparation of blood smears to calculate the neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio. The average calculation result of theN/L ratio in the lactation group (0.47 ± 0.23) was higher (p<0.05) than the gestation group (0.19 ± 0.12) with a positive moderate correlation (r = 0.59). The conclusion of this study indicates that while being in the normal range, the N/L ratio in Sapera goats during lactation period was higher than the ratio in Sapera goats during gestation period.
Key words: Gestation / goat / lactation / ratio of N/L / sapera goat
