Abstract:

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the relation of various management and feeding practices with the occurrence of uterine torsion in buffaloes. Five hundred and seven dairy buffalo farmers from 20 districts of Punjab state were surveyed using a questionnaire based on management practices in relation to occurrence of uterine torsion. Extensively reared buffaloes were at lower (p<0.05) risk of uterine torsion as compared to the stall-fed buffaloes. Daily exercise in the form of walk/wallowing reduced(p<0.05) the risk of uterine torsion. Keeping buffaloes on kacha (mud)floor was associated with lower risk of uterine torsion. However, the segregation of advance pregnant buffaloes and feeding practices had no impact (p>0.05) on the occurrence of uterine torsion. In brief, the rearing of buffaloes in extensive system on kacha(mud) floor along with daily exercise can reduce the incidence of uterine torsion in buffaloes.
