Effects of environmental temperature on thermoregulatory responses and oxygen consumption in swamp buffaloes and Holstein cattle



Effects of environmental temperature on thermoregulatory responses and oxygen consumption in swamp buffaloes and Holstein cattle



Buffalo Journal 2(2): 151-160



Studies dealing with the effects of environmental temperatures in the range of 20 to 40 degrees C on various aspects of the thermoregulatory function of buffaloes and Holstein cattle was carried out in a room, where overall mean relative humidity were 71.2+or-2.1%. The rectal temperatures were lower in buffaloes than in Holsteins throughout the experiments and remained almost constant in both species at ambient temperatures below 35 degrees C.
