The Calving Interval in Buffaloes
The calving interval is the period between two consecutive calvings and its two components are the service period and the gestation period. Among the reproductive traits calving interval is the most important criterion. Table 5 gives the calving intervals in different types of buffaloes.
The period between calving and conception is known as the service period and its length is dependent on post partum oestrus and the actual conception requiring one, two or more services. The post partum oestrus and the service period in water buffaloes wise given in table 6 and table 7.
Lactation is an integral part of the reproductive cycle. In Indian conditions the average lactation period is 280-300 days depending on the breed and level of management. If the animals are not bred in time after parturition. They continue to give milk till 800-400 days. The wide variations in lactation yield and its length indicate that there is considerable scope for the improvement of buffaloes by proper feeding, breeding and management.
