Dairy and meat producers around the world face the global challenge of increasing food production in a sustainable manner. And this is in an environment of price instability, increased environmental regulations, rising agrochemical costs, and labor shortages. And the biggest of all, is climate change, with increasingly intense dry periods and increasingly erratic rainfall. How to survive these situations, but more importantly, how to thrive?

     One species has naturally adapted to most of these conditions in its natural evolution. It survives in savannahs with minimal intervention, tolerates droughts and floods better, and is more resistant to parasites and diseases in general. It is the Water Buffalo or Asian Buffalo (Bubalus bubalis).

     We, the buffalo breeders of Venezuela, are convinced that this noble animal is the answer to all these challenges. We are here to promote, defend and encourage the buffalo and its breeders.

     The Technical Commission of Criabúfalos of Venezuela administers the registration and genealogical control program (PRCG). This program is in charge of the processes of creation, promotion, and administration of the herd books of buffalo breeds in Venezuela.

     Only associate members can opt to certify their herd with this program. When a buffalo is certified by the PRCG, the value of the buffalo increases, and at the same time, the genetic improvement of the national herd is promoted.

Agreement with the Agronomy Faculty of La Universidad del Zulia LUZ

     The Faculty of Agronomy of the University of Zulia is a great ally of our association and this relationship brings benefits in the academic area for all members of Criabúfalos as well as for the general public.

     They endorse our training, open their doors for research and together we promote the buffalo business throughout the country.
