The present study was carried out during rainy season for a period of 120 days to see the effect of different shade materials on the performance of twenty four buffalo calf. Twenty four buffalo calves after colostrum feeding were selected for study and divided into 4 groups (6 calves in each group). The different groups of calves were studied under different roof materials as followed: Asbestos roof (T1), Pre painted CGI sheet roof (T2), Thatch with polythene shading roof (T3): Galvanized iron sheet roof (T4). The respiration rate (per minute) at 9:00 AM was 23.88±0.29, 23.88±0.29, 22.33±0.13 and 23.90±0.28, whereas at 2:00 PM was 49.25±0.35, 49.80±0.20, 32.71±0.02 and 49.25±0.35 for T1, T2, T3 and T4, respectively. The results revealed that the respiration rate of buffalo calves at 2:00PM was significantly (P
