Adoption of Recommended Breeding Practices on Small Holder Buffalo Rearing Systems of the Kole Lands of Thrissur district, Kerala

Reeja George, Sruthy Kombath Mohan.

A descriptive analysis of buffalo rearing in the Thrissur kole was undertaken to assess the structure of the buffalo units and the extent of adoption of scientific buffalo rearing practices. Snowball sampling was used to select fifty buffalo keepers each from North and South koles. Data were collected using a pretested interview schedule. Meat based units of the North kole were larger with an average of seven total livestock units and the units on the South kole were the smallest. More farmers of the North kole had adopted recommended breeding practices to a higher extent when compared to their counterparts in the South kole (45.45 per cent). The mean age at puberty of buffalo heifers on the kole lands was 32.76 1.02 months while the average number of services per conception was 2.78 0.43 and the mean inter calving period observed was 628.13 37.58 days.

Key words: Adoption, Breeding Practices, Buffalo, Kole Lands
