Abstract:

Thirteen newly born Murrah buffalo calves were utilized for the experiment and were randomly allocated to suckling and weaned groups. The allocation resulted in 7 suckling calves as well as 6 calves under weaning system of management. The overall least squares’ means (LSM’s) for LWB’s of Murrah buffalo calves at birth, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30 and 31 weeks of age were 30.87±1.13, 37.81± 2.37, 41.50±2.23, 44.02±2.29, 46.65. ±2.35, 49.31±2.57, 52.54±2.85, 54.46±2.82, 58.65±3.10, 63.56±3.02, 67.73±3.19, 71.35±3.46, 76.53±3.53, 79.16±3.31, 84.04±3.75, 89.59±3.89, 93.49±3.83, 99.25±4.42, 103.20±4.48, 108.22±5.29, 113.45±5.34, 118.12±5.25, 123.41±4.89, 127.53±4.68, 127.20±4.69, 134.41±5.37, 145.18±3.84, 149.59±3.85, 152.95±3.73, 164.42±5.46 and 168.48±5.46kg, respectively. The overall mean for service period in dams of Murrah buffalo calves was 95.00±39.11 d. Dams of suckling calves had more mean for service period than dams of weaned calves and it was found to be almost double of that of dams of female calves. The service period was more in dams of later parities, in general. Considering the fertility response of weaning induced estrous cycles, the results of this study further reaffirm the fact that weaning effect can enhance the conception rates and reduce service period
