Ovary and ovarian bursa of twelve female reproductive organ, six samples from each immature and mature buffaloes were collected from slaughterhouse. All samples were transferred to anatomy department of veterinary college, and they studied morphologically and morphometrically, length, wide, and thickness of ovaries, deep and wide of opening of ovarian bursa were measured. Additionally, dimension of corpus luteum and weight of ovaries along with corpus luteum were measured. This study revealed that ovaries in buffaloes are oval shape and it is briefly flattened in two sides, and surfaces of ovaries were smooth and shinny, and corpus luteum has meaty appearance too. Dimension of right ovaries without corpus luteum were more than the left ovaries. Dimension and weight of corpus luteum on the right ovaries were more than the left ovaries. Deep and wide of the right ovarian bursa was more than the left ovarian bursa, and in overall, dimension of ovarian bursa was larger than the ovaries. Difference of dimension and weight of ovaries in immature and mature buffaloes were high significant(P<0.01), and in overall, dimension of ovaries in immature buffaloes were 1.54 cm length, 0.87 cm wide, 0.67 cm thickness, and in mature buffaloes were 2.08 cm length, 1.31 cm wide, 1.07cm thickness, and weight of the ovaries in immature buffaloes were 1.25gr, and in adult buffaloes were 3.24gr.
