  1. Hematological parameters in calves either supplemented with selenitetriglycerides or not supplemented (control) on day 0 (before supplementation) and days 1–14 after supplementation. *- P < 0.05, **- P < 0.01: Representing the significance of change over time in studied parameters in each studied group (Friedmans ANOVA). Different letters (A, B) represent the significant difference (P < 0.05) in concentration between groups in each sampling date
