Viral: If you follow X on the internet (previously Twitter), you should have seen some of Harsh Goenka's incredible posts. However, the sight of a massive Buffalo amused the man this time. Goenka recently expressed his shock on social media after seeing an incredible exhibition of Jafarabadi buffaloes. The enormous monster's size left him stunned and speechless. With just a woh emoji, the Indian businessman captioned the photo, "A Jaffarabadi buffalo from Gir, Gujarat."
Jaffarabadi Buffalo: The Heaviest Breeds
Native to the Saurashtra region of Gujarat, specifically the Gir forest, the Jaffarabadi buffalo breed is one of the heaviest. It goes by the names Bhavanagri, Gir, and Jaffari as well. It has the name of Gujarat state's Jaffarabad town. The animals' average weight ranges from 700 kg to 620 kg, with female animals weighing the most. The animal's forehead is large and dome-shaped, and eyelids are occasionally covered by the forehead bulge as well.
Peculiar Horn Shape
This breed has unusually shaped horns. Its horns are flat, thick, and curved downward. Horns usually grow from the head by squeezing it, and then they migrate upward, inward, and sideways until eventually forming a ring-like structure, however they differ widely. Referred to as "study eye," it causes eyes to appear small, particularly in men. This breed has a reputation for fighting lions in the Gir Forest. Though certain animals with white or grey tail are also visible, most species are black in color. The animals yield 2239 kg of milk on average, with a 7.7% fat percentage.
In Amreli and other places, jafarabadi buffaloes are much in demand. Prices for Jafarabadi Shrestha Olad buffalo range from Rs 1,50,000 to Rs 3,60,000, according to reposts. There are estimated to be 25,000 Jafarabadi buffaloes worldwide.
