Present study was conducted to evaluate the serum physio-biochemical parameters in postpartum anestrus buffaloes after supplementation of Murraya koenigii and Aegle marmelos leaf powder. The experimental buffaloes were divided into two groups, each comprising 12 animals. Animals of group-I were administered Buserelin acetate at day 0, followed by Cloprostenol on day 7 and second GnRH on day 9 (Ov-synch). Buffaloes of group-II were subjected to ovsynch protocol along with supplementation of Murraya koenigii and Aegle marmelos leaf powder from day 0 to 6. Timed artificial insemination was performed at 12-24 hrs after the second GnRH injection in both groups. The serum calcium, phosphorus and estradiol were estimated at days 0 and 10 using commercially available kits. The mean serum calcium concentration in group-I was 6.18±0.26 and 6.49±0.27 mg/dl while in group-II, the mean serum calcium value was 6.30±0.27 and 7.28±0.32 mg/dl respectively on day 0 and 10. The mean serum phosphorus on days 0 and 10 was recorded to be 4.47±0.12 and 4.58±0.11 mg/dl in Group l whereas it was 4.69±0.15 and 4.89±0.14 mg/dl in Group ll, respectively. The mean serum estradiol on days 0 and 10 was recorded at 70.38±1.10 and 80.63±2.28 pg/ml in Group l where as it was 71.20±1.47 and 86.82±2.30 pg/ml in Group ll. It can be concluded that supplementation of Murraya koenigii and Aegle marmelos leaf powder caused an increase in serum calcium, phosphorus and serum estrogen level in postpartum buffaloes.
