Murrah & Graded murrah buffalo
   

Sir,

What are the physical differences between graded and original Murrah buffalo.How to distinguish these,which one is original and which one is graded.Is it true that original Murrah buffalo will give more fat milk compared to graded for the same feed, let us say 15 days from delivery.

We are facing dry fodder scarcity. To improve fat , can you suggest any alternatives for dry fodder.

 

Thanks in advance

Re: Murrah & Graded murrah buffalo
   
Farmers purchase murrah buffalo from Haryana and Delhi region which are genetically pure.However in breeding program,other buffalo breeds are bred with pure Murrah animals which are graded.
Fa% age is depends on genetical factor but more than that feeding factor is important i this aspect.If dry fodder in diet of animal is less then fat % comes down.You can use Wheat straw in spite of dry fodder.

Re: Murrah & Graded murrah buffalo
   
But in Andhra , we can't find wheat straw as in Haryana. Can you suggest the best feed requirements for more milk and for more fat, considering them separately. We purchased animals from Rohtak. How to get better fat from these animals in Andhra pradesh also.

Re: Murrah & Graded murrah buffalo
   

what about rice straw? looks like that might be the most available form of straw in AP (and relatively cheap). Next would probably be maize stalk? But am not sure about their nutritional contents.

also do you mind sharing how your yield rates/fat content are for the buffalos you procured from haryana? and how much they cost you?

Re: Murrah & Graded murrah buffalo
   
Both wheat straw and rice straw are very poor in nutritional quality.In Maharashtra,farmers used to burn wheat straw after harvesting the wheat crop.As far wheat and rice straw is concern,It need valid tratment before using it as animal feed.There are few drawbacks of using wheat or rice straw as feed :
1.It is very dry and husky which may cause irritation to oral mucosa.
2.It is tasteless.
3.It is poor in protein content.
To avoid these drawbacks and to make whatever available wheat or rice straw as animal feed,you need to treat it according to following things:
1.Take 100 kg of wheat or rice straw.
2.Make a layer of 6 inches by spearding it uniformly on the ground.
3.Take full bucket of clean driniking water and add 1.5 kg Urea in it & stirr it so that all urea will be dissolved in that water.After that Add 1kg of salt and 3 kg of low quality Jagarry in it and make a unifrm suspension.After making this concentrate solution ,spray it on uniformly spread wheat or rice straw.Also stirr this matter from inside to ouside way so that straw get uniform treatment of the prepared solution.Then make a heap of treated straw and cover it with gunny bags for 2-3 hours and use in the feed of animals up to 3-4 kg per day.

Re: Murrah & Graded murrah buffalo
   
In Rohtak, average cost of 12+ per day yielding buffalo with 2nd/3rd delivary costs around 42000 in the month of october.

Here we didn't check fat %, only yielding. It is observed that fat% is more in original murrah compared to graded for the same feed.

Is it advisable to use Maize straw only as dry fodder. Is it good practice to mix the dry(maize straw) and wet grass(para,gini & APBN) to feed the murrah buffalos. Please suggest

Thanks & Regards

Re: Murrah & Graded murrah buffalo
   

thanks mr.srinivasulu.

Dr. D.P.Bhoite, is there any reason to go for a purebred murrah farm as compared to a graded or local one in AP (Which probably already has some murrah%)? some local ones in coastal AP are yeilding 8-10lpd and cost below 30k (need a lot of searching :) )and they are acclimated well to the local climate.
value-wise, it seems to be safer to go with the local as maintenance of a breed already used to the local climate could be easier. 
as you mentioned, some fat % difference might be there but it is not significant when proper feed is maintained?
i only see two downsides:
a. need more local buffalos to get equivalent volume of milk compared to purebred.
b. female calves born later might (?) be better yeilding and acclimated by the time they growup, if purebred? please advise.

Re: Murrah & Graded murrah buffalo
   

It is true that many time those breeds like Murrah which are purchased from different region are not familiar with local environment.Local buffaloes are good and your thinking about more number of buffaloes with respect to Murrah is also good but then it also requires more feed and management.It has one alternative to grade local buffalo or use Murrah semen for artificial insemination.Although the process of upgradation is slow but in future you will get good quality animals those were familiar with local environment.But as a upgraded animal,we also need to keep good nutrition and health practices in proper manner in forthcoming days for improved buffaloes.
For pure breed as i quoted ,needs improved health,nutrtion and stress management.Most of reproductive problems are mainly associated with nutrition as well as management.So to get helpful information ,you need to take training in KVK's or regional agricultural institute

In our area ,few farmers who keep local buffaloes with some percentage of Murrah,Surti etc are in profit as animal gives 10-12 litres of milk with 7-8% fat,less maintenance cost with  improved fodder,nutrition and management practices.SO its depends on situation and choice of farmers to go for pure murrah or loacal/graded animals.
