The primary objective of the study is to analyze the bacteriological studies associated with affected diarrhoeic buffalo calves irrespective age group, sex and breed. Faecal swab were collected aseptically from diarrhoeic calves for microbiological study. During post-mortem examination, a swab was taken from affected areas of gastro-intestinal tract showing lesions under aseptic conditions and transported on ice to laboratory.
