Abstract:
Reproductive health problems are one of the major causes of economic losses in Ethiopian cattle industry. A cross sectional study was carried out to determine prevalence and it associated risk factors of major reproductive health problem in dairy cattle of Jimma Horro district from November 2016 to November 2017. From a total of 384 randomly selected dairy cattle 11.7% (45/384) of cattle were infected by at least with one of reproductive health problem in study area. This study shown that abortion (2.9%), dystocia (2.3%), retained fetal membrane (2.1%), uterine prolapse (1.3%), still birth (1.0%), Anestrous (0.7%), vaginal prolapse (0.7%) and repeat breeder (0.5%) were the major reproductive health problem in Jimma Horro district. Season of calving (OR = 2.3) and type of breeding (OR = 3.4) were identified as risk factors of reproductive health problem in study area. However, herd size, age group, parity, body condition, origin and previous history of reproductive problems of dairy cattle were not show statistically significant difference with prevalence of reproduction health problems (P > 0.05). The current study indicated that reproductive health problem is one of the cattle production losses in the district. Hence, there is a need to design and implemented appropriate control methods of reproduction health problem and further investigation should be carried out to isolate and characterize the causes of the reproductive health problems in the study area
