Postpartum endocrinology and prospects for fertility improvement in the lactating riverine buffalo (Bubalus bubalis) and yak (Poephagus grunniens L.)



Postpartum endocrinology and prospects for fertility improvement in the lactating riverine buffalo (Bubalus bubalis) and yak (Poephagus grunniens L.)



Livestock Production Science 98(1/2): 13-23



In many Asian countries the riverine buffalo is the major milk producing animal besides contributing towards draught power and meat production. The animal however suffers from inherent reproductive problems such as poor estrus expression and long calving intervals which limits its lifetime production. The yak is a seasonal breeder and the mainstay of highlanders and tribal populations inhabiting the inhospitable terrains of the Himalayan region.
