Abstract

A total of 80 serum and saliva samples of cattle were taken under conditions before transportation (T1), after transportation (T2), rest period (T3), after stunning (T4) and after slaughtered (T5). Serum and saliva tested using the Cortisol ELISA immunoassay method. The remaining serum was used to measure Superoxide Dismutase (SOD), Malondialdehyde (MDA) and Glutathione Peroxidase (GPx) level. Areas of the brain i.e. the hypothalamus, hippocampus, brain stem, and cerebellum were tested for Superoxide Dismutase (SOD), Glutathione Peroxidase (GPx) and mitochondrial metabolic activity. The results showed significant differences (p<0.05) during the transportation until slaughtered. The profile of brain metabolism shown after the slaughter.
