Abstract: The present study was conducted with an aim to access the incidence of peri-parturient reproductive disorders and to determine the seasonal calving pattern in cross bred cows of Jammu region. A total of 2638 calving records of cross bred dairy cows between 2010 – 2016 were screened retrospectively for peri-parturient reproductive disorders. The most common reproductive problems recorded in the present study were retained placenta (13.34%), still birth (6.36%), abortions (5.68%) and dystocia (2.19%). Incidence of retained placenta, still birth and dystocia were higher in winter season than in rainy and summer season. Whereas the incidence of abortion was higher in rainy season. Highest numbers of calving were recorded in winter season.
