Present investigation was carried out on the total of 27 referred cases of uterine torsion in Surti buffaloes during the different season (Winter, Summer, Rainy, Autumn) of a year.The buffaloes of the tribal area of southern Rajasthan are more susceptible to uterine torsion due to hilly tract along with water logging land. Maximum incidence of uterine torsion was recorded during the rainy season (77.77%) depending on the breeding pattern of the buffalo in this particular region. Over all 66.66% primiparous buffalo out of 85.18% referred cases were of full term and right side torsion. Post cervical position of torsion was in 88.88% with maximum cases of 180°-90° degree of torsion (59.25%). Recto-vaginal examination is the best way to diagnose -the type and extent of uterine torsion. Modified Schaffer’s method found more suitable to correct the uterine torsion in 59.25 cases. The survivability of dam and fetus was 81.48% and 25.92%, respectively.
