In 1959 cattle and 257 buffaloes examined, the incidence of lameness was 8.10 and 3.89%, respectively. Interdigital wounds (in 28.3%) and overgrown hooves (in 20.1%) were the commonest findings in the cattle, in which lameness was more prevalent in the 3-5 years age group, in Holstein Friesians (63.8%), and in hind limbs. Lameness in buffaloes was found more (40%) in animals over 5 years of age
