    . A total of 360 one-day-old Wulong geese were divided into 6 groups with 6 replicates per group and 10 geese per replicate. Geese in the group I (control group) were fed a basal diet (copper content was 6.43 mg/kg), and geese in the experimental groups (groups II to VI) were fed the basal diet supplemented with 15, 30, 60, 120 and 240 mg/kg copper, respectively. The experiment lasted for 4 weeks. The results showed as follows: (1) compared with control group, serum total cholesterolcholesterolSubject Category: Chemicals and Chemical Groups

    -cholesterol contents in group III were significantly decreased (P<0.05), and high density lipoproteins-cholesterol content was significantly increased (P<0.05). (2) Compared with control group, total anti-oxidative capacity, the activities of CuZn superoxide dismutase (CuZn-SOD) and copper-protein (CP) and immune organ indexes in group II were significantly improved (P<0.05 or P<0.01). (3) Serum CuZn-SOD and CP activities had significant positive correlation with the immune organ indexed (P<0.05 or P<0.01). In conclusion, adding 15 mg/kg copper in the diet has significant effects on lipid metabolism, antioxidant ability and immune organ indexes of Wulong geese aged from 1 to 4 weeks. It has a correlation among body antioxidant enzyme activity, lipid metabolism and immune organ indexes in some extent.
