In present study, four advanced pregnant (48 to 72 hrs. before expected parturition) Surti buffaloes were used. The standing method of mammary biopsy has certain advantages which includes easy, rapid and effective procedure with minimum stress and minimum loss of secretary activity. The procedure require only mild sedation and infiltration of local anesthesia at operative site. The procedure is characterized by rapid recovery without any adverse effect on milk yield when considerable attention is paid to control haemostasis during operation and antibiotic prophylaxis.
