Purnathadi locally known as ‘Bhuri buffaloes’ are phenotypically distinct because of its brownish to white coat colour and preferred by small and marginal farmers due to high milk fat%, good reproductive efficiency, low maintenance cost, thrive on low quality crop residues during summer and are well adapted to the harsh and hot climate of Vidarbha. This monograph is the compilation of the comprehensive information on various aspects of the Purnathadi buffaloes and it will be an important document towards characterization of this precious buffalo germplasm.
