Its home tract stretches around the southern parts of Haryana comprising the districts of Rohtak, Jind, Hisar, Jhajjar, Fatehabad, Gurgaon and the Union Territory of Delhi. However, this breed has spread to almost all parts of the country and is being bred either in pure form or is being used as improved breed for grading up local buffaloes. In fact, this breed has even found and important place in the livestock industry of many developing countries like Bulgaria, Philippines, Malaysia, Thailand, China, Indonesia, Bangladesh, Nepal, former USSR, Myanmar, Vietnam, Brazil and Shri Lanka. read more
Buffaloes like other domesticated ruminants meet their protein and energy requirements from fermentation end products (microbial protein and volatile fatty acids). In recent past, comparative studies on the digestive physiology and nutrient requirements of buffalo with other species such as cattle and sheep have been reported. A greater ruminal degradation of both fiber and protein was noticed in buffaloes than in cattle and sheep. This unique ability to better ferment fiber in buffaloes could be the result of adaptation because for years they have been fed on low quality high fibrous more

 Introduction: Amitraz is the only formamidine used in veterinary medicine, and is available in various formulations to treat for ticks, lice, and mites in dogs, swine, and cattle. To date, none of these approved products is labeled to repel or kill fleas. Although the mechanism of action of amitraz is not very clear, this ascaricide inhibits monamine oxidase (MAO) that normally metabolizes neurotransmitter amines present in the CNS of ticks and mites. There are no effects on cholinesterase activity read more
Dairy farming is in transforming stage in India and having huge potential to bring prosperity to farmers. In this second phase of development of dairy industry more learned and qualified youth come in this sector and therefore they want to learn the techniques and scientific practices established in Dairy farming. Axonvet, therefore, made this web portal to streamline hardline scientific information in a lucid and easily understandable way. We also try to write articles in Hindi wherever required. So it's for you, learn and enjoy, if you have any query or question please email us at, your feedback would be needed for continued improvement.

प्र0    भैंस खुलकर गर्मी में नहीं आती। गाभिन करायें या नहीं?
 उ0    भैंस में गर्मी के लक्षण बहुत हल्के होते हैं। उनकी तुलना गाय से नहीं करनी चाहिए। लक्षण यदि ठीक प्रकार से पहचान में नहीं आ रहे हैं तो डाक्टर से जांच करा लें। इसके अलावा यदि डाक्टर उपलब्ध नहीं है तो आप इस गर्मी को छोड़ भी सकते हैं। लेकिन इस गर्मी की तारीख कहीं पर लिख कर रख लें । 20-22 दिन बाद यदि ये लक्षण फिर आते हैं तो यह समझें कि भैंस निश्चित रूप से गर्मी में है। भैंस को अवश्य गाभिन करायें।

प्र0    भैंस डोका करती है, पर बोलती नहीं। क्या करें?
उ0    कुछ भैंसों में शांत मद के कारण गर्मी के लक्षण स्पष्ट रूप से दिखार्इ नहीं देते हैं। परन्तु गर्मी में आने से 3-4 दिन पहले तक उसके थन दूध से भरे दिखार्इ देते हैं। इसे डोका कहते हैं। आमतौर पर डोका इस बात का सूचक माना जाता है कि भैंस गर्मी में आने वाली है। अत: डोका करने के 3-4 दिन बाद यदि भैंस तार देती है तो समझें कि भैंस गर्मी में है और गाभिन read more


The scientific data to explain protein requirements and their utilization from different sources at various physiological stages in buffaloes is scarce. In contrast to high producing western dairy cattle where much attention has been paid to develop energy and protein standards and nutrient requirement models, no such planned effort has been made to establish protein or energy needs in buffaloes. read more

Mineral nutrition in dairy animals is often ignored and if done it is done in an unscientific way. It is because some of the minerals are given in higher quantity than required and some will be given in lower quantity. Balance mineral nutrition is required for the proper health of rumen and rumen microbes. It is frequently seen in India that when dairy animals are not coming into heat than consultant veterinary physician prescribe mineral mixture as a remedy. read more
Whenever we fed protein to ruminants it gets the breakdown in the rumen by microbes into ammonia and volatile fatty acids. Up to certain extent, ammonia is useful and further converted into amino acids and proteins through the process of amination of VFAs. But sometimes when excess protein is fed than higher ammonia will be formed which will be harmful to animals. But through certain techniques, we can lower protein destruction in the rumen and improve protein feeding efficiency in animals. read more
