Abstract:

Data maintained on 742 breeding bulls of different breeds indicated that 213 cases were affected during 3 year period and 78 cases were treated by surgical interventions. Surgical cases recorded were as lameness 51 (23.94%), major affections 09 (4.23%) and minor affections 18 (8.45%). Lameness was highest in purebred Holstein Friesian (7.04%) compared to purebred Jersey bulls (0.94%), while it was highest in crossbred Holstein Friesian (8.92%) compared to crossbred Jersey bulls (1.41%). Proper hoof trimming was mainly essential tool in early recovery of hoof lameness. The broad spectrum antibiotic (Amoxicillin-Cloxacillin) was parentally administered in ulceration cases. The major surgical affections recorded (2.35%) were preputial prolapse, urolithasis, diaphragmatic hernia and horn avulsion. Minor surgical cases were highest in crossbred Jersey bulls (2.35%) due to abscessation. The overall recovery rate in breeding bulls for lameness, major and minor surgical affections was 68.63, 66.67 & 66.67 per cent respectively.
