Water Buffalo for Draft

Buffalo have been bred to pull loads greater than three times their body weight while also producing milk (Acharya and Bhat 1989). These loads can be pulled for two to three hours continuously and for six to eight hours a day during winter and five to six hours during summer with rest pauses in between. Working buffalo increases heart rate, respiratory activity, body temperature and plasma volume and develops a mild alkalosis. Milk production can be maintained when buffalo cows were fed and managed adequately although it is compromised under hot environmental conditions.

The buffalo is a multipurpose animal. Not only is it a better source of milk than the cow, it also provides meat and works as a natural source of energy.
