Abstract

The investigation was planned to study the management practices of buffaloes in the nine agroclimatic
zones of Maharashtra state. A multistage stratified sampling procedure was used to select
the sample households (HHs). It could be revealed from the study that the Group feeding seems to
be more adoptive in the state. The type of roughages fed includes both green and dry in all the
zones. Grazing was the major practice of feeding buffaloes. Feeding of mineral mixture was not
found in majority of cases. The HHs were well aware about the vaccination for preventive diseases.
The large percentages of the households were adopting the various management practices to a
great extent in various zones of Maharashtra state
