Abstract:

A study was carried out to induce the cyclicity in anoestrus Murrah buffaloes with different hormonal preparations and biochemical changes in blood occurring during anoestrus were also studied. The present investigation was conducted during summer season (April–May) and the buffaloes were randomly divided into two groups of 12 animals each, viz., Group I (n=12; CIDR + PMSG 500 I.U. + hCG 1500 I.U.) animals treated with CIDR protocol and Group II (n=12; Hydroxyprogesterone caproate 500 mg + Estradiol valerate 5mg + PMSG 500 I.U) animals treated with Progesterone and Estradiol (P and E) combination protocol. Murrah buffaloes were maintained in the shed and were provided with ad libitum feed and water. The results of present investigation revealed that CIDR in combination with PMSG + hCG gave better results in terms of induction of cyclicity and conception as compared to the other treatment group. A significant decline in total protein, albumin and SGPT values were recorded in anoestrus animals as compared to normal cyclic animals. The outcome from this experiment provides beneficial information to induce the cyclicity in anoestrus Murrah buffaloes using different hormonal preparations which also helps in maintaining production strategies of animals during extreme summer season in transgangetic plain region.
