Reproduction in Cattle is essential reading for veterinary and agricultural students, as well as veterinarians and farmers involved in cattle reproduction.

About the Author. Peter J. Ball is the author of Reproduction in Cattle, 3rd Edition, published by Wiley.4/5(1). Pregnancy testing in cattle. Control of calving. Controlling the calving interval. Embryo transfer and associated techniques in cattle. Introduction of twin births in cattle.

Breeding cattle at younger ages. Introduction to controlled reproduction in buffaloes. Control of oestrous, Pregnancy testing and parturition control in buffaloes. Reproduction is an important consideration in the economics of cattle production.

In the absence of regular breeding and calving at the appropriate time cattle rearing will not be profitable. A healthy calf each year is the usual goal.

This is possible only by increasing the reproductive efficiency of the animals. Areas of controlled reproduction in female cattle.

11 Heat Detection or Estrous Detection. Estrous behavior. Because of these and other subtle differences between cattle and buffalo (fertility in buffaloes is considered lower than in cattle), [18] essentially therefore RB in the buffalo must be.

Cattle and buffaloes were domesticated for draft, milk, and meat around the same period in history. The domestic buffalo, also known as the water buffalo because its predilection for water. This book is the final one in a set of four providing a series on controlled reproduction in farm animals.

The aim of the series is to provide a general review of the literature dealing with the different ways in which reproduction in the major farm mammals can be controlled and : Some common methods of breeding of cattle, buffaloes, sheep, goats, pigs, horses, donkeys, mules, camels, etc.

are described below. Cattle (Bos indicus): Selection: Mature cattle having more than 3 years of age should be used for breeding.

Methods of Breeding: There are two methods of cattle breeding: natural breeding and artificial. Building on the successful structure of the first edition, the second edition of Reproductive Technologies in Farm Animals has been revised to provide up-to-date accounts of the key techniques employed in manipulating reproduction in farm animals, including beef and dairy cattle, pigs, sheep, goats, buffaloes, camelids, horses, and poultry.

A classic introductory text to the subject, the book Cited by:   Bovine Reproduction is a comprehensive, current reference providing information on all aspects of reproduction in the bull and cow.

Offering fundamental knowledge on evaluating and restoring fertility in the bovine patient, the book also places information in the context of herd health where appropriate for a truly global view of bovine theriogenology. Reproduction in Buffalo. The domestic buffalo, Bubalus bubalis, is a distinct species within the Bovidae o population is continuously increasing and was estimated at over million head in (FAO, ).

The breeding program may use either artificial insemination (AI) or natural service. AI has been commercially available for >60 yr; it is widely used in dairy cattle but is used much less in beef cattle because of handling and labor costs.

AI offers a selection of bulls with known genetic potential, such as measured by estimated breeding values. Controlled Reproduction in Cattle and Buffaloes by Ian Gordon Summary. Introduction to controlled reproduction in cattle.

The cow's oestrous cicle and associated events. Artificial control of oestrus and ovulation. Pregnancy testing in cattle. Control of calving. Controlling the calving interval. Embryo transfer and associated techniques in cattle. Fertility decreases in buffaloes exposed to THI above 75 in subtropical climatic condition as compared to cattle, since buffaloes are more sensitive to heat stress.

The increase of uterine temperature by °C during hot days causes a decrease in the rate of fertilization [ 30 ] since in severely heat stressed cows most damages over the Cited by: 6. Controlled Breeding Season Managing the cow herd to calve in 90 days or less can be one of the most important steps toward increasing net calf percentage.

The breeding season for replacement heifers should begin one month before the breeding season for the mature cow herd. Cattle play a fundamental role in animal agriculture throughout the world. They not only provide us with a vital food source, but they also provide us with fertilizer and fuel.

Keeping reproduction levels at an optimum level is therefore essential, but this is often a complicated process, especially with modern, high yielding cows. Written in a practical and user-friendly style, this book Reviews: 1. For example, India possesses over million heads of cattle and buffaloes, which comes to more than one-fifth of the total world population of cattle and buffaloes.

The average annual production of an Indian cow is only kg as against an average yield per milking cow of 3, kg in Denmark, 3, kg in Switzerland and kg in the U.S.A. (vi) increased or, at least, acceptable reproduction rate. Methods of Animal Breeding: Two methods of animals breeding are: inbreeding and out breeding, based mainly on breeding work with cattle.

Inbreeding: When breeding is between animals of the same breed for genera­tions, it is called inbreeding. Buffaloes make up nearly 1/3 of the total milk bovine population and contribute more than 52% of the total milk production in the country.

Compared to cattle these are known to be better converters of more fibrous feeds into rich milk of 7 per cent fat. Buffaloes are also hardy and require less attention than cattle.

Buffaloes are characterized by seasonal reproductive activity. Anestrus buffalo heifers and lactating buffaloes were used to study the effect of melatonin treatment on the resumption of ovarian activity during out-of-breeding season.

Buffaloes of treated group were injected or implanted with melatonin (18 mg melatonin/50 kg body weight).
