Romanian Buffalo (Romanian:Bivol românesc) is a variety of the Domestic Water buffalo from Transylvania, Romania.
The Romanian Buffalo breed of Domestic Asian Water buffalo stems from the Common European water buffalo, Mediterranean type. Introgression has been made since 1960 from Murrah (Bulgaria). Herdbook was established in 1987. In the Romanian population there exist three different buffalo types: Carpathian type, Danubian buffalo and the one improved through the Indian Murrah. The most numerous Romanian buffalos are the Carpathian type, with valuable gene resource, well adapted to the cold climate for buffalo.
Main uses are milk, meat and draught power. Milk yield varies according to season of calving, lactations number, level of feeding, and length of lactation. Lactation milk yield (kg) is between 958-1455 kg. The number of days lactation per year is 252-285.

Australian Buffalo

Post by khandairies on Tue Sep 22, 2009 12:31 am

Buffalo were introduced into Australia from the eastern Indonesian islands in the early 1800’s
There are now 30,000 domesticated buffalo in tuberculosis and brucellosis free areas in Australia’s Northern Territory. Feral buffalo number over 80,000.

The Northern Territory Department of Primary Industry is implementing a program whereby all feral buffalo will be eradicated by 1990. The purpose of this program is to halt the spread of brucellosis and tuberculosis from infected areas.

Both the Department of Primary Industry and the Buffalo Industry Council are assisting producers to build up controlled domesticated and game park herds of buffalo for production of meat and breeding animals.

Feedlots have been established to turn out young male buffalo (approx. 180 kilograms dressing weight [400 pounds]) and work is currently underway to establish a standard carcass.

Objective data are available on growth rates and fertility of the Australian buffalo. In research programs conducted in Northern Australia, growth rates appear similar to those of Brahman cross cattle. Fertility is generally excellent.
A substantial buffalo meat export industry has developed with exports primarily to Europe and Asia. Buffalo meat is also consumed on the domestic market.
Australia is basically free of major diseases affecting buffalo elsewhere in the world.
