The present investigation was carried out on 390 samples of the female genital tract of cow belonging to different age and breeds, of which 156 (40%) were found to have various abnormalities. Out of these, 119 (30.5%) samples revealed pathological lesions in the ovary and uterus, of which 6 cases (3.84%) were of haemorrhages. Grossly, the blackish-red coloured spots were seen on the surface of the ovary, the uterine mucosa revealed hyperaemic and closure to the cervix, there was a large accumulation of blood and mucous in the uterine cavity. Microscopically, the ovarian stroma was diffusely filled with RBC’s and massive area of haemorrhage seen in the uterine cavity.
