Abstract

The histomorphological features of mammary glands of heifer, pregnant, lactating and dry buffaloes were studied. The diameter and volume of alveoli were significantly higher in lactating buffaloes. The number of alveoli per mm2 area was higher in pregnant and lactating buffaloes. Squamous to columnar epithelium lining the alveoli was observed in lactating fland. During pregnancy, alveoli were lied by cuboidal cells. Many of these showed corpora amylacea in the lumen. The length and width of the lobules were also recorded.
