Is there any difference between a cow and a buffalo?
By LEE VANDERWALTTER”It’s the same with beef, a cattle-like animal,” said K.N. Pandey, chief of the Animal Welfare Board of India, who has been involved in the study for several years.
“If you’re looking at the characteristics of a cow, the calf’s not different from a buffalo.
The difference is in the diet.
But there is a difference in the feeding pattern.
A cow has to graze and drink milk, whereas a buffalo needs a grass feed and other resources.
And when you have a buffalo, you have to feed it and water it.”
Pandey said cattle breeds were not very different from buffalo breeds.
But it was the feeding habits of cattle, and the food available, that would determine whether the animal was a buffalo or a cow.
“It is a complex issue.
It depends on the cattle breed and its diet.
A buffalo breeds in the plains of India.
Its diet is rich in meat and water.
A cattle breed that lives in the tropical regions of the world is not suited for such a diet.
So the feeding patterns of a buffalo breed are quite different from the other breeds.”
Pandy said the differences in the diets of cattle breeds could be explained in part by the different diets of buffalo species.
“The diet of the cow is more important than that of the buffalo breed, because the buffalo have to be fed grass.
A lot of the cattle that are raised for meat have to have grass on their diet,” he said.
The Indian government has been studying the nutrition of the animals in its cattle farms.
The study has not been completed.
“I have not yet studied the feed of the cows.
I have only read a few reports.
But we have done a lot of work on the cows in our farms and have found that cows are not eating enough.
We have found the cows are eating less than the recommendations,” said Vijay Chawla, the research scientist who heads the Centre for Livestock Science at National Institute of Animal Health and Welfare (NIAEW).”
When we look at the diets, we see a difference between the beef and buffalo breeds and the grassfed and free-range breeds,” he added.
The researchers also looked at other aspects of cattle.
“A buffalo is fed only grass and water and the other animals are fed grass or water as well,” Chawlas said.
“Bovine blood, for example, is less than that in cows, and so, when the animals are eating the grass, the amount of Bovine Blood in their blood is much less.”
Chawla also said the animals were not eating as much protein as they could.
“They are consuming more of their energy from the animal,” he explained.
The study showed that the diet of cattle in India was not as rich in protein as that in the U.S. “Our results are consistent with the results of other studies which have been done in the West and Australia.
Our findings indicate that the Indian cattle breed is not a good choice for humans, because it is not suitable for the Indian diet,” said Pandey.
The Indian government recently banned the sale of cattle for meat because of the increasing numbers of diseases associated with the animal.
In the U., the number of cattle killed due to disease has more than doubled in the last decade.
