Studies on the behaviour of Egyptian cows and buffaloes

Studies on the behaviour of Egyptian cows and buffaloes

Deutsche Tieraerztliche Wochenschrift 86(1): 20-23

The behavioural pattern was studied in 38 cows and 11 buffaloes (divided into 3 groups according to age) over 36 days under typical Egyptian conditions of husbandry and management, including feeding and milking. The behavioural factors studied included approaching, threatening, butting, pushing aside and mounting, according to which a social rank order was established. In nearly all groups, a highly significant positive correlation was established between rank position on the one hand and age, body wt. and body measurements on the other. Although the effect of rank order on milk yield was not studied in this experiment, the work of others on the effects of rank order on milk yield is reviewed.
