Abstract:
The reproductive performance of breeding female is probably the single most important factor that is a prerequisite for sustainable dairy production system and influencing the productivity. About 18-40 percent of cattle and buffalo are culled and reach to abattoir mostly due to infertility. Keeping in view such a problem the present study was undertaken to find out the reproductive performance of buffalo. The reproductive characteristics of buffaloes were studied at organized farm, Department of Animal Husbandry and Dairy Science, College of Agriculture, Parbhani, (M.S). The raw data were collected by evaluating the actual records of Murrah (40), Surti (25) and Jaffrabadi (13) buffaloes during the period from the year 2000 to 2020 were compiled from the pedigree sheet, lactation records and breeding records of each individual animal. The overall least square means for age at first calving (AFC), service period (SP) and inter-calving period (ICP), of Murrah, Surti and Jaffrabadi buffaloes was recorded as 1812.14 ± 50.99, 1778.55 ± 28.26 and 1724.60 ± 35. 79 days; 238.31 ± 64.83, 230.68 ± 58.64 and 183.06 ± 44.31 days; 545.08 ± 66.15, 547.18 ± 57.72 and 493.06 ± 44.31 days, respectively. From the present study it is concluded that, the winter season is the most favorable season for breeding in all three breeds of buffalo
