Abstract:

Red Kandhari is one of the important breed of Marathwada region of Maharashtra State. This breed is known as Lal Kandhari. In the present investigation the reproductive performance of Red Kandhari cattle at various stages of growth were studied at different locations in the breeding tract. The idea behind the collection of data in breeding tract of Red Kandhari cattle from the farmers and breeders herd of Red Kandhari rather than on the organized farm to obtain the real picture of reproductive performance of breed in the breeding tract. The reproductive traits often help in judging the economic value of the animal. The overall least square means for age at puberty (AP) of Red Kandhari cattle was recorded as 883.16 + 0.83 days. The effect of block and season were found highly significant on AP whereas, the effect of colour was found non-significant. The overall least square means for age at first estrus (AFE) of Red Kandhari cattle was recorded as 1236.96 + 1.67 days. The effect of block and season were found highly significant on AFE whereas, the effect of colour was found non-significant. The overall least square means for age at first calving (AFC) of Red Kandhari cattle was recorded as 1529.61 + 1.71 days. The effect of season was found highly significant on AFC whereas, the effect of block and colour were found non-significant. The overall least square means for service period (SP) of Red Kandhari cattle was recorded as 139.92 + 0.66 days. The effect of block and season were found highly significant on SP whereas, the effect of colour was found non-significant. The overall least square means for gestation period (GP) of Red Kandhari cattle was recorded as 283.49 + 0.23 days. The effect of block, season and colour were found non-significant on GP. The improvement in reproductive characteristics of indigenous breeds has become essential to make the economically viable dairy animals.
