Pregnant Murrah arrive & a new baby buffalo

(For those of you who don't know what Murrah means, is a breed of Water buffalo :) )

After months of going back and forth between Laos and Thailand, selecting the right buffalo, making sure the birthing dates would be right, and filling out paperwork, out beautiful buffalo ladies from Thailand have arrived! 

Recently 12 pregnant Murrah buffalo arrived at Laos Buffalo Dairy.  These ladies will be added to our family to help up our milk yield and hopefully, help us breed more Murrah/Swamp cross breeds which we can then populate the Laos countryside with.

These ladies will live together in a quarantine shed for a full month so we can make sure they don’t have any diseases that they could pass to our Laos population.  After that time, they will join the rest of our crew and live the spoiled life of a milking buffalo.  The babies are expected to come into the world in the next 4 – 8 weeks and we can't wait to meet our new little babies!

Keep a lookout for our baby pictures!  We know you’ll love the cuteness as much as we do!

Also, on the same day the Murrah arrived, one of our own local buffalo gave birth. So much cuteness and good news in just one day!
