Introduction Fertility of dairy cow is reduced in last few decades with increased productivity. Reduced fertility may limit the profitability and sustainability of dairy farms.

Hassan Khan sir yes, Oxidative stress and its relationship with the fertility, metabolic and respiratory diseases is an area of applied research work. Lot of research is needed to understand the pathophysiology of oxidative stress in dairy animals. Identification, quantification and technique development for appropriate oxidative stress biomarker in relationship with animals’ performance is of paramount importance. There is need to specify the range of oxidative stress biomarkers and list of biomarkers identification for particular condition in dairy animals. Because whatever the studies available show huge variation in range of oxidative biomarkers level, so need to work on these aspects. I am interested to work in future on the oxidative stress biomarker and identification, monitoring related diseases in animal.
