Abstract:
The present study was carried out with 160 buffalo rearers, which were randomly selected from eight villages of Begun and Kapasan tehsils of Chittorgarh district of Rajasthan. Each respondent was personally interviewed and data collected for buffalo calf rearing. All respondents attended buffalo at calving, protected calf against harsh weather, agreed on availability of veterinary aid, dispose dead animal by throwing off for decaying or vultures and didn’t practice dehorning and castration. About 28% owner consulted with quack and stockman for treatment. A total of 71.87% consulted to a veterinarian for treatment of retained placenta and dropped placenta was disposed-off by deep burial by 78.12% rearers. Lice/tick eradication was employed by73.12% owner and maximum of them performed chemical dusting. Control of flies/mosquitoes achieved by smoke of grass by 90.63% owner. Buffalo calves rearing practices are far away from modern era’s principles and more extension work required in this region.
