Author(s): Vikas Kumar Meena, Shiv Kumar Sharma, Suman Meena and Lokesh Kumar Chandolia
Abstract: The transition period from 3 weeks prepartum to 3 weeks postpartum, is the most stressful phase for buffaloes. A total of 65 transition buffaloes were included in present study. The mean value of rectal temperature was significantly (p<0.05) higher during transition period as compared to control animals while the mean value of respiration rate and heart rate were significantly (p<0.05) higher during prepartum period in buffaloes. The supplemented group received an oral prophylactic regimen consisting of Calcimust gel (containing calcium, phosphorus, vitamin D3 and vitamin B12 along with Pueraria mirifica) @ 300 gm per day per animal and Himshakti (containing gluconeogenic precursors with vitamin B3 and vitamin E) @ 150 ml per day per animal for six days (3 days before expected calving to 3 days after calving). Supplementation of Calcimust gel and Himshakti had improved the altered values of the ruminal motility (/2 min) during transition period in buffaloes. It was concluded that transition period was the stressful phase for dairy buffaloes with marked changes in clinical parameters. Administration of prophylactic regimen had positive effect in transition buffaloes.
