Abstract

The study on breeding management practices followed by the buffalo owners of Buldana district
revealed that rearing of purchased non-descript buffaloes was done by 90, 78.98 and 88.24 per cent
farmers from group I , II and III respectively. None of the dairy farmers adopted A.I technique;
however 90 to 99 per cent farmers had knowledge of detection of heat in buffaloes. Nearly 10 per
cent farmers had no mortality on their farms. Majority of the dairy farmers i.e 56.60 and 60.22 per
cent from group I and II respectively had poor breeding management index i.e below 71-80 per cent
