Influence of age and season on body mass, scrotal circumference and sexual behaviour of Nili-Ravi buffalo (Bubalus bubalis L.) bulls



Influence of age and season on body mass, scrotal circumference and sexual behaviour of Nili-Ravi buffalo (Bubalus bubalis L.) bulls



Veterinarski Arhiv 68(6): 219-229



16 buffalo bulls was divided into 4 age groups; 3-4, 6-7, 8-9 and 12-15 years of age. Observations made over 5 seasons (dry summer, humid summer, autumn, winter and spring) showed an overall mean body mass of 689+or-55 kg. It was greatest in bulls of 8-9 years of age and was lowest in summer. The mean scrotal circumference (SC) was 32.6+or-3.3 cm and showed no difference in age groups, but was lower in summer.
