Abstract: The primary objective of the present investigation was to evaluate the total cholesterol level of pubertal Marwari rams by utilizing an ethanolic dry extract derived from Moringa oleifera leaves (MOLEE). A total of twenty-four pubertal rams, aged between 7-8 months and with an average body weight of 28 kg, were meticulously selected and randomly divided into four experimental groups, each consisting of six rams. Group C received a standard diet without any MOLEE supplementation, while groups T1, T2, and T3 were administered the same standard diet along with MOLEE at doses of 40, 80, and 160 mg/kg body weight respectively, for a duration of 90 days. Blood samples were collected biweekly, and the serum was isolated and stored at -20 °C for subsequent analysis of cholesterol using Erba test kits. The results indicated that the concentration of cholesterol (mg/dl) was significantly (p<0.05) lower in Moringa supplemented groups in comparison to control. This study provides evidence that the extract of Moringa oleifera leaves can serve as a valuable dietary supplement, promoting sexual maturity and reducing cholesterol levels in pubertal Marwari rams.
