Abstract:
The present study was conducted to document the buffalo rearing practices by owners in two taluqas of North Karnataka. A total of 90 buffalo farmers, 45 from each taluqa were randomly selected for survey. All buffalo owners attended calving and cared for the calves after parturition, fed inadequate colostrum to new born calves within time, they didn’t practice naval ligation after parturition, and weaned calves at three months of age. The farmers followed AI in mid heat, and their AFC was 3-4 years with an ICP of 12-18 months. Adequate housing provisions were made based on need and tradition. Green fodder was not specially cultivated for feeding and no provisions were made for feeding of extra salt, mineral mixture, bypass protein. Knuckling though wrong was the milking method adopted and treatment of adult buffaloes was mostly done by empirical knowledge and local resources and not by a Vet.
