The aim of this review is to present antioxidants and oxidative stress in cows during lactation as biological health markers. Identification of health markers is useful tool to show an effect of foreign chemical substances and their effects on different changes in the body. Investigation of various biomarkers of oxidative stress related to various health issues in dairy cows is important. The biological health markers of animals have significant dependence on the modifications in components of biochemical and hematological processes. Numerous biochemical parameters are affected by different variables as animal breeds, age, development, gestation status and production status. Disturbance in feed intake and rise in metabolic processes lift oxidative stress in cows especially during pregnancy and at peak lactation may be determined by supervising blood alterations.
