The best season to buy buffalo is in July and February.Because at this time good fodder is available.Due to which their growth is good.Buy the buffalo only after it has been about 15 days since its birth.Because by then all their filth has been cleaned up.And if there is any infection in their udders etc., then it is known by then.After delivering the baby, do not travel long distances for about 15 days.Because traveling for a long distance causes problems to the buffalo and can also increase any disease.Never buy an animal in a hurry.Most of the buffaloes are bought according to age and not on lactation basis.Because buffalo gives more milk and higher performance between 8 and 12 years.
