Reproduction in Buffalo

The domestic buffalo, Bubalus bubalis, is a distinct species within the Bovidae family. Buffalo population is continuously increasing and was estimated at over 160 million head in 2002 (FAO, 2003).

More than 95% of the population is located in Asia where buffaloes play a prominent role in rural livestock production providing the work draft force, milk and meat. In recent decades, buffalo farming has expanded widely in Mediterranean areas and in Latin America.
