Abstract:

The present study was carried out to estimate seasonal variation of calving in Murrah buffaloes. The study was conducted in Central plain of Uttar Pradesh (Etah and Unnao), Mid-western plain of Uttar Pradesh (Bareilly) and Western plain zone Uttar Pradesh (Meerut) of India on 2828Murrah buffaloes theses buffaloes were inseminated during June 2010 to December 2014at BAIF’s field Artificial Insemination centers which provide door-step artificial insemination service at villages level. The result indicated that calving of Murrah buffaloes occurred throughout year. In Central plain of Uttar Pradesh maximum calving observed in October month 18.70% & August 15.44%. In Mid-western plain of Uttar Pradesh maximum calving observed in October month 17.59% & December 14.54% while in Western plain zone Uttar Pradesh maximum calving observed in August month 23.48% &October 17.39%.On the basis of season majority of calving observed between July to January months. It can be concluded that Murrah buffaloes have tendency to calve more in the days with shorter photoperiod as compare to days with longer photoperiod.
