ABSTRACT
The article presents an analysis of the performance of the Murrah buffalo, a world renowned breed known for its high milk production with high fat percentage, in its home tract India. It states that the breed can efficiently use roughages and crop by-products while its milk products are suitable for a wide range of quality items like butter and cheese. It notes that their performance in its home tract has increased and they were able to maintain their ability to generate the best of breed animals. It also discusses the performance of the buffaloes that were cross-bred with other breeds such as the Surti buffalo cows and the Mehsana buffaloes.
