For this purpose, uterine horns of 100 female buffaloes of various age groups, including 35 heifers, 25 adults and 40 aged buffaloes were collected and examined for gross pathological lesions; the incidence of pathological abnormalities in uterine horns was 7.00 percent. Out of 35 buffaloes showed 2 (5.71 %) defective uterine horns and in similar way uterine horns revealed pathological changes as 12 and 5 percent in adults and aged buffaloes, respectively.
