There is particular interest in knowledge of the physiological alterations that occur during the transition period, with the aim of understanding the intensity of metabolic alterations and their impacts on animal health. Due to the paucity of data on Moxotó females,related to the dynamics of the energy profile, protein, and mineral metabolites, the present study aimed to evaluate the profile of some blood biomarkers duringthetransition period. There was significant variation in metabolic dynamics related to energy, protein, andmineral profiles. There is a need for further study of other parameters, rendering them reference values in the different periods of gestation, particularly in the final third of gestation, when metabolic diseases can occur, putting the lives of the animals at risk.
