Haematological variations on ovine gestation and the beginning of lactation has been studied. During the first two months of pregnancy, there was an increase in red blood count (RBC), packed cell volume (PCV) and haemoglobin concentration. Later, these values fell until parturition. RBC and PCV rose few hours after parturition and at the beginning of lactation.
