Abstract: A two-month-old female buffalo calf with a history of anorexia and vomiting just after drinking was brought to the veterinary clinic at the Lala Lajpat Rai University of Veterinary And Animal Sciences, Hisar. An oesophageal survey radiograph revealed radiolucent material in the distal part of the cervical oesophagus along with oesophageal dilatation. Surgical surgery was required because passing a stomach tube couldn't clear the impediment. A rope loaded with dry feed leading to a hard lump was discovered to be the impeding foreign object. Following surgery, the animal recovered without incident.
