Stress related behavioural traits of Murrah buffaloes were studied, of which, the mean feeding time was more in T2 group followed by T3, T1 and C groups of buffaloes while the mean rumination time was more in T1 group followed by T3, T2 and C groups of buffaloes. The mean resting time was more in C group of Murrah buffaloes followed by T3, T2 and T1 groups whereas the mean drinking time was more in C group followed by T2, T3 and T1 groups of buffaloes.
