"Buffalo are the second largest source of milk supply. Of the 38.5 million tons of world milk production, India produces 23.6 million and Pakistan 10.5 million tons (FAO 1991, Table 6.1). While the world cattle population over the last 18 years has risen by less than one per cent per year, the buffalo population has gone up by two per cent per year, with higher rises in India (3.5 per cent), Pakistan (5.4 per cent), China (3.7 per cent), Vietnam (4.8 per cent) and Nepal (2.0 per cent). The higher population growth rate of buffalo can be attributed to better conversion efficiency compared to the local cattle. Ninety-five per cent of India's milk is produced from bovine diets based on crop residues like wheat straw, paddy straw, maize and millet stovers, supplemented with concentrates made out of agricultural by-products such as, oil cakes, rice polish and molasses. In India buffalo account for 33 per cent of the milk animal population and 45 per cent of milk."(1)

Dairy buffalo production from Delaval -

 

Water buffalo have been responsible for more than ten percent of world milk production for several years, but the potential of these animals has seldom been appreciated or recognized. One of the main reasons for this is that those who have a stake in rearing buffalo are generally poor and underprivileged, and not able to project the impact this beast has on their livelihood and well-being.

 

The word "buffalo" evokes a mixed response in North America, a large section of Europe, and in many other parts of the world where buffalo have never been considered a domesticated species. This animal has been identified as a zoo animal or a wild beast. However it is among the most gentle of the domesticated dairy species, which is obvious in lndia and the sub-continent where it is common to see small children handling large herds of buffalo.

 

Over time buffalo rearing has shifted from the backyard to commercial farms and large business enterprises. The immense popularity of buffalo milk and meat products has ensured that buffalo production has followed in the path of the dairy cattle industry. However for this species to perform optimally under the pressure of intensive production systems, buffalo breeds have to be improved, with clear focus on the desired output. This has not yet happened. Buffalo, although potentially excellent for both milk and meat production, still languish in obscure conditions of poor nutrition, breeding, management and welfare.

Buffalo Milk Yields for Cheese:

Yield: With fresh buffalo milk with a FAT 8.3% and 4.3% of proteins, you get an average of 24.6%. I.e. from the processing of 1 quintal of buffalo milk gets over 24 Kg of mozzarella, against 13 Kg obtained an average of 1 quintal of milk. Buffalo milk yield is, in this case, in excess of approximately 1.8 times that of cows ' milk. To get a pound of mozzarella di bufala serve approximately 4 and a half litres of milk.

As you can see from the chart, buffalo milk has 58% more calcium, 40% more protein, and 43% less cholesterol than cow's milk.

Buffalo milk is a totally natural product that can be consumed like any other milk. Time after time participants in tasting trials pick out buffalo milk in preference to cows, goats and artificially manufactured milks. They just love the taste.

Buffalo milk is a totally natural product that can be consumed like any other milk. Time after time participants in tasting trials pick out buffalo milk in preference to cows, goats and artificially manufactured milks. They just love the taste.

 Buffalo milk is very white and beautifully smooth. It is significantly lower in cholesterol and higher in calcium than cows, sheep or goats milks. And unlike the array of industrially produced soya and other cereal milks it is totally free of additives and chemical formulations.

In addition to the significant cholesterol and calcium benefits Buffalo Milk is also a rich source of iron, phosphorus, vitamin A and of course protein.

Buffalo Milk also  contains high levels of the natural antioxidant tocopherol. Peroxidate activity is normally 2-4 times that of cows milk.  

An unfortunate sign of the times is the growing number of people who suffer from cows milk allergy (cma). Fortunately this is not the case with Buffalo Milk which is suitable for many suffers from cma*.  

The high milk solids of Buffalo Milk not only make it ideal for processing into superb dairy products but also contribute to significant energy savings in conducting that process. Yogurts are natural thick set without recourse to adding addition milk proteins or gelling agents as with lesser milks.          

Unlike the modern dairy cow the buffalo can thrive without the need to use high levels of concentrated feed. Grass, clover and straw make up the bulk of a buffaloes diet. No bone meals, fish meals or genetically modified feeds are ever fed to our buffalo.  

And for those concerned about BSE; buffalo are a genetically pure species with no BSE or scrapie.  

Dairies  love to work with Buffalo Milk, which we all know makes the best mozzarella. The smooth texture and richness converts into a truly wonderful range of multiple award winning products. And for vegetarians who are denied the opportunity to enjoy Italian buffalo mozzarella (which uses animal rennet)

Throughout Asia and south east Europe - South America to Canada - from lush tropics to the harsh conditions of Nepal, the placid, eco-conscious buffalo provides milk, meat  and draught power to many million families.

Unaltered by genetic manipulation the Buffalo, unlike the modern cow, can still thrive without the excessive need for antibiotics and high protein feeds

Following from India Dairy.Com - Other interesting facts at this site. 

"The high-yielding Murrah is the Holstein-Friesian of the buffalo world. There is no reason why the Murrah and other riverine breeds should not exceed the volumetric yield of the best milk cows. Buffalo milk contains about twice as much butterfat as cow milk. There is no physiological need for concentrate feed to maintain this level. When concentrates are fed, the fat content rises. When fed ad lib, it can exceed 15 per cent. Fed to excess, this figure can be much higher. The buffalo, in fact, releases unwanted fat in the milk and stores only a minimum in the body tissues."
