MITAT VALDES, Alina. Water Buffaloes in Cuba II. Herd Evolution, Adaptation, and Current State. Rev. prod. anim. [online]. 2022, vol.34, n.2, pp.26-38.  Epub 30-Ago-2022. ISSN 2224-7920.


The introduction of buffaloes in Cuba is relatively recent; however, it has been established under several constraints, mainly cognitive ones.


. To conduct a detailed analysis of the introduction of Buffaloes in Cuba, and their adaptation to the environmental conditions and current development.


The study reports the evolution of herds since the arrival of the swamp subspecies and its current situation.


The general results indicate that the adaptation of buffaloes to the Cuban environment is a reality; however, to increase and maintain the productivity of this species it is necessary to implement a program based on new management and technological approaches whose guidance stems from the closed-cycle production and includes a coherent genetic breeding project.

Palabras clave : Buffaloes; adaptation; program development.
