    Abstract : Thermal stress resulted in various physiobiochemical alterations in the exposed buffaloes. The rectal temperature and respiration rates increased concurrently with the rising exposure temperature. There was a significant decrease in the electrolyte, triglyceride, thyroid hormone and aldosterone concentration. On the contrary the reactive oxygen radicals and cortisol hormone increased during thermal stress. The study also revealed high methane production at optimum temperatures as compared during heat stress.
