The prevalence of anoestrus in postpartum dairy buffaloes was studied in 1036 buffaloes of organized dairy farms of Jabalpur with the history of non- exhibition of behavioral oestrus approximately four months and above postpartum during the period of one year. Based on the history of anoestrus and findings of the gynaeco- clinical examination, the anoestrus animals were further categorized into clinical true anoestrus, sub-oestrus and anoestrus due to other physio-pathological conditions. The results revealed highest prevalence of true anoestrus (43.14%) followed by sub-oestrus (33.20%) and anoestrus due to other physio-pathological conditions (23.64%) in postpartum dairy buffaloes. The prevalence of anoestrus in dairy buffaloes was also studied months wise and data were analyzed at an interval of every three months throughout the year. The prevalence of true anoestrus, sub-oestrus and anoestrus due to other physio-pathological conditions was recorded 44.35, 31.38, 24.26% during January to March; 53.84, 35.66, 10.48% during April to June; 42.23, 32.60, 25.15% during July to September; and 38.55, 34.03, 27.40% during October to December; respectively. The analysis of results revealed highest percentage of true anoestrus (53.84%) and sub-oestrus (35.66%) during the summer months i.e. April to June as compared to the other months of the study. However, the prevalence of anoestrus due to other physio-pathological conditions was found lowest during summer as compared to the other seasons.
