Reproduction Management in buffalo

Reproductive efficiency is the primary factor affecting productivity and is hampered, in female buffalo, by the late attainment of puberty, seasonality of calving, long postpartum anoestrus and subsequent calving interval.

Proper oestrus management allows for more efficient planning of milk production, especially in larger herds and facilitates the use of artificial insemination. Essentially similar basic approaches are being used in buffaloes as there are in cattle. All of the pharmacological systems for oestrus management used nowadays in buffaloes have been adapted from the systems used in cattle through empirical approach and are supported with increasing number of controlled works reported in the literature. The same products are being used in buffaloes as in cattle although few of them have indication for buffalo specifically stated in their user leaflets.
