Abstract:

The present investigation was conducted in two districts (Bhiwani, Sirsa) of Western Haryana. Further two tehsil were selected from each district and two villages from each tehsil were selected randomly. Twenty five buffalo rearers from each of village were selected thus making a sample of 200 buffalo rearers. Results of this study revealed that, most of respondents attended buffaloes at time of calving and trimmed hooves of the calf after birth. Majority 92.50 per cent of the respondents did not cut naval cord of calf. About 35.50 per cent owners disposed off placenta by throw off in open area. It was found that 53.00 per cent of the owners allowed suckling calf up to 6 month. More than half (55.00 and 23.50 per cent) of buffalo keepers did not perform deworming and tick\lice eradications measures in calves. So in addition to the traditional knowledge scientific knowledge for this aspect is also important. For this we can organize trainings to farmers by Krishi Vigyan Kendra and Krishi Gyan Kendra on all aspect of buffalo calf management. So that as a result we can get superior animals for future.
