The present study has undertaken in the animals carrying various reproductive stages were selected from local area of Parbhani district of Maharashtra State and animals belonging to local or non descript breeds of buffaloes were grouped as cyclic and non cyclic category with each group consisting of twenty buffaloes. To determine various haematological parameters in local buffaloes viz, Haemoglobin, Packed Cell Volume, Total erythrocyte count, Total leucocyte count and Differential leucocyte count. Standard laboratory methods were used to analyse hemogram. On estimation of blood haematological values, the average values of Haemoglobin, Packed Cell Volume, Total erythrocyte count, Total leucocyte count and Differential leucocytes viz: lymphocytes, monocytes, neutrophils, eosinophils and basophils were 11.805 gm per cent, 34.564 per cent, 5.747 x 106/cumm, 11.336 x 103/ cumm and 61.100 percent, 2.350 per cent, 34 percent,1.250 per cent and 0.6 per cent in cyclic buffaloes and the same were 11.008 gm per cent, 32.903 per cent, 5.155 x 106/cumm, 8.660 x 103/cumm and 62.050 per cent, 2.450 per cent, 33.100 per cent, 1.200 per cent and 0.550 per cent in non cyclic buffaloes, respectively. Amongst haematological parameters, haemoglobin, Total erythrocyte count and Differential leucocytes: lymphocytes, monocytes, neutrophils, eosinophils and basophils did not differ significantly in cyclic and non cyclic buffaloes, whereas Packed cell volume (P<0.05), Total leucocyte count (P<0.01) differed significantly in cyclic and non cyclic buffaloes. The higher mean value of Packed cell volume among cyclic local buffaloes is concomitant with the higher values of Total erythrocyte count in cyclic local buffaloes. The higher Total leucocyte count among the cyclic local buffaloes might be due to the estrous phase because it was higher on the day of estrous. However, in non cyclic local buffaloes, low values of Total leucocyte count might be due to infectious conditions. Thus it was concluded that reproductive health could be interpreted by hemogram in buffaloes.
