The present study was carried out in a total of 673 postpartum crossbred cows of first to fifth lactations maintained under stall fed conditions at different Government and private farms from Kamrup Metro, Cachar and Udalguri district of Assam. All the postpartum crossbred cows were examined per rectum to determine the reproductive status based on the owner’s history and the incidence of cows with silent oestrus was worked out. Results revealed that a total of 86 crossbred cows (12.78%) reported to be anestrous were identified as silent oestrus on the basis of presence of either uterine tone or corpus luteum or Graafian follicle on clinico-gynaecological examination. The district-wise incidence of silent oestrus was found to be 14.29, 10.08 and 14.25 per cent in Kamrup Metro, Cachar and Udalguri district respectively. Reproductive status of the crossbred cows other than anoestrus investigated were pregnant, recently calved, repeat breeder, true anoestrus, chronic cervicitis, metritis, ovaro-bursal adhesion, cystic ovary and normal oestrus with the percentage frequencies of 11.44, 8.02, 22.88, 26.11, 2.67, 11.00, 0.30, 0.44 and 4.31 respectively when estimated out of the total number of postpartum cows.
