Abstract:
Homeostasis plays a vital role in endotherms, largely dependent on the climatic factor. A harsh and warranted climate deteriorates the animal’s performance which is reflected by changes in water and feed intake, besides showing the fluctuations in the physiological parameters. Buffalo being an endothermic animal follow the same principles, but with a more profound response as the species is having its peculiar character of dark colour with the presence of fewer sweat glanads sparse across the body. An increased ambient temperature reflected on varied physiology viz. rectal temperature, respiration rate and heart rate, besides affecting the feeding and water intake. This review paper focuses on the effect of microclimate on the feeding, drinking and physiological parameters of livestock species including buffalo as a prime species.
