This study was conducted at the animal field, Agriculture College, Al-Muthanna University, from 6/14/2020 until 9/14/2020, to know the hormonal changes of Arabi sheep using magnetized water. A total of 18 male Arabi lambs of a weaning age (four months) were used. The lambs were divided into three groups were as follows: T1: Was given natural water (flue water), which was prepared as a control group. T2: was given RO water (River Osmosis water). T3: was given magnetized water (water treated with magnetism).The level of hormones in the blood of male lambs was measured using the ELISA device. The hormones cortisol, growth hormone and testosterone.
The results showed that there were significant effect (P<0.05) of the quality of water sources on the values of serum hormones, as the magnetized water group significantly outperformed the water group (R.O), which significantly outperformed the control group in the values of growth hormones and cortisol, the values of growth hormones and cortisol were not affected by the weeks of the study in the control group and the second group compared with the third group. The control group was not significantly affected by the weeks of the study, no significant differences in the second week of the different groups in the values of growth hormones and cortisol.
