In order to expand use of this technology, there is a need to further refine this protocol for buffalo breeds of commercial significance such as the Nili-Ravi buffalo of Pakistan.
Fertility following CIDR based synchronization regimens in anoestrous Nili-Ravi buffaloes.
Pakistan is lucky in having two best tropically breed of buffaloes, such as Nili-Ravi
and Kundi breeds, eight recognized breed of cattle of Hostein Friesian and Jersey breeds as well as their crossbreed with local cattle (Sahiwal, Red Sindhi and Thari); Dera Din Pench, Beetal, Nachi and Kamori goats and Lohi, Kjli, Keghani, Damani, and Salt Range sheeps are augmenting animal production in the country.
Shah (1991) reported that Nili-Ravi is the best dairy breed in the world with a maximum milk production potential of 5000 liters per lactation of 305 days followed by Kundi breed with a maximum potential of 3500 liters.
There are two buffalo breeds namely, Kundi and Nili-Ravi and eight discrete breeds of cattle.
The present study was designed to evaluate the effect of replacing concentrates with different levels of this fermented (FWS) product on intake and digestibility, ruminal characteristics, in situ digestion kinetics and nitrogen (N) metabolism in Nili-Ravi
Influence of ad libitum feeding of urea treated wheat straw with or without corn steep liquor on intake, in situ digestion kinetics, nitrogen metabolism, and nutrient digestion in Nili-Ravi
A total of 24 Nili-Ravi
buffaloes within 60 days after parturition were selected out of 50 animals at the private dairy farm situated at village Palosi close to the university campus.
Experiments were based on eight multiparous, non-lactating, cyclic Nili-Ravi
buffaloes, 4-10 years old and with a body weight in the range of 450-600 kg.
2002) described that higher serum urea levels because of excessive CP intake and poor body condition because of lower energy intake were the key factors for lower reproductive efficiency in Nili-Ravi
The river buffalo animals were selected from two exotic breeds, Murrah and Nili-Ravi
, that were introduced from India and Pakistan, respectively, and sampling was based on the pedigree to avoid close relationships among individuals.
ABSTRACT : Twenty four early lactating Nili-Ravi
buffaloes, eight in each group, were used in a Randomized Complete Block Design to evaluate the influence of varying ruminally degradable protein (RDP) to ruminally undegradable protein (RUP) ratio on feed intake, digestibility, N balance, milk yield and its composition, conception rate and days open.
