Summary
On request of the FAO Buffalo Research Network for Europe and Near East a proposal to
initiate a centre of reference for international exchange and comparisons of water buffaloes in
the region is presented. The conditions for carrying out an international comparison of buffalo
bulls are not present at this time. However, there are a number of preliminary steps, which, if
taken, might facilitate the performance of such comparison in the near future: wide exchange of
information, development of research on international evaluation, definition of data and Herd
Book guidelines, germplasm exchange, reproductive bio-technologies exchange.
