Abstract: The aim of this study was comparison of hematological parameters according strain, physiological status, age, season and sex in cattle. Blood samples from 300 Holstein, Brown-swiss, Semental, Brown-swiss x Semental crossbreed and Brown-swiss x Holstein crossbreed cattle at different physiological status (dairy cows, dried cows, non pregnant cows, pregnant heifers, suckling and non suckling calf), age (0.5-3, 3.5-6, 6.5-9, 9.5-18, 18.5-36, 36.5-60 and >60 months) sex (male and female) and season (spring, summer, autumn and winter) were used. RBC mass, WBC mass, Hemoglobin concentrations (HB), PCV, MCV, MCHC, MCH, platelet mass, percent and concentration of lymphocyte, neutrophil, eosinophil and monocyte were determined with routine methods. Except for PCV, neutrophil, lymphocyte, eosinophil percents and neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio, there was not significant differences for other hematological parameters between strains. Except for Platelet concentration, monocyte percent and count, the other hematological parameters were significantly differ between various physiological status and ages of cattle. Except for Hb, PL, WBC and monocyte concentration, the other hematological parameters were significantly differ between sexes. Except for neutrophil concentration, monocyte percent and concentration, the other hematological parameters were significantly differ between seasons.
