In the present study, we report on the level of norepinephrine and epinephrine in healthy cattle, using high-performance liquid chromatography with an electrochemical detector (HPLC-EC). Sixteen crossbred Holstein dairy cows (> 87.5% Holstein) and fifteen swamp buffaloes (Bubalus bubalis), which included both sexes, were included. In the dairy cows, the plasma norepinephrine and epinephrine concentrations (mean ± SE) were 3.89 ± 0.51 nM and 0.82 + 0.12 nM, respectively. The concentrations of plasma norepinephrine and epinephrine in buffaloes (mean ± SE) were 3.75 ± 0.51 and 1.82 ± 0.45 nM, respectively.
