Factors affecting birth weight in Nili-Ravi buffalo calves



Factors affecting birth weight in Nili-Ravi buffalo calves



Pakistan Veterinary Journal 19(3): 119-122



The birth weights of 2756 buffalo calves born during 1978-1994 at 6 dairy farms in Pakistan were studied. The mean birth weight of the calves was 33.63+or-0.13 kg. Male calves (35.98+or-0.17 kg) were significantly heavier than female (30.45+or-0.14 kg) calves (P<0.001). Higher birth weight was observed in male and female calves born to early-maturing buffaloes as compared to late-maturing dams.
