The metabolic changes in blood may reflect the biochemical composition of follicular fluid and this may influence oocyte and surrounding somatic cell quality. The aim of this study was to examine the metabolic stressors composition composition of follicular fluid and sera of sheep and goat. Serum and follicular fluid samples were assayed for glucose, cholesterol, triglycerides, urea, ammonia, non-esterified fatty acids and betahydroxyburyric acids. Result showed that the trends of metabolic stressors compositions in sera and follicular fluid were found to be similar in sheep and goats. The serum concentrations for glucose, cholesterol, triglycerides and non-esterified fatty acids were significantly higher compared to follicular fluid. The ammonia and beta-hydroxyburyric acids concentrations were significantly higher in follicular fluid. No significant difference was observed in urea concentration between sera and follicular fluid.
