Abstract:
Detailed obstetrical examination was performed in referral dystocia cases of Graded Murrah buffaloes (n=122) and the incidence of maternal and fetal dystocia was recorded and analyzed. Out of the 122 dystocia affected buffaloes a total of 77.86 and 22.14 per cent buffaloes had maternal and fetal dystocia, respectively. Uterine torsion was the more frequent cause of maternal dystocia with an incidence of 92.63 per cent. Limb flexion was the major cause of fetal dystocia with an incidence of 51.85 per cent. In summary, the higher incidence of uterine torsion could be minimized by adopting good management practices in buffaloes especially those reared in house hold and field level.
