The effect of Burdizzo, Russian and vasectomy methods of castration on the gain in body weight was studied over a period of 2 1/2 months in the buffalo calves of two age groups (1--1 1/2 years and 2 1/2--3 years). The gain in body weight (1--1 1/2 years age group) has been significantly greater (P less than 0.05) in the control animals (30.3 +/- 3.38 kg) as well as those emasculated by the vasectomy (31.3 +/- 1.4 kg) method in comparison to the other two methods.
