Abstract

Bovine SSomatotropin (bST) was administered in lactating Surti buffaloes to study its effect on the histoarchitecture of mammary gland. Bovine Somatotropin (bST) administration has a growth promoting effect on the epithelium of mammary gland of buffaloes. The size of the lobules, alveoli as well as number and volume of alveoli were increased in the treatment group as compared to control group. Mammary tissue in treated animals was maintained in lactating state, as bST retarded involuting changes in the alveoli.
