The study of the timing of calving and breeding domesticated reindeer in different areas of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia)

 The articlepresents the materials of physiological bases of intensification ofreproduction of deer conducted in three periods of research: 1 – in the periodof active sexual season (August – November); 2 – in the period of fruiting(October – April – May); 3 – in the period of calving and postpartum period(April – June). During calving the whole breeding stock of the reindeer herdwas monitored with the help of experienced shepherds. The number of dailycalving were taken into account by the marking of the newborn. In thepostpartum stage, attention was paid to the behavior of the important, themother’s attitude to the newborn, the time of the first sucking, the timing ofthe separation of the afterbirth. From the given examples it is clear that thedeer rut does not end in October – November, some does can be covered inDecember – January. In reindeer husbandry, as a rule, free mating is used. Oneof the choir – the manufacturer accounts for 12–18 does. The chorus is easy to finda actually female in the hunt and stalking her prior to coating. Terms calvingand rut in different ulus of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia), located indifferent climatic zones, vary. So the earliest terms of manifestation ofsexual excitement begins at deer of breed Hargin of the Nizhnekolymskiy uluswhich are in softer conditions of existence, in the period from August 22 toSeptember 20, and mass (91,4 %) – from August 22 to September 10. Then beginsthe rut of deer in the Momskiy ulus (Alpine zone) and Haryyalakh herds ofOlenek ulus (taiga zone), which lasts from 6 September to 10–15 October, andthe mass (94 %) – from 11–15 September to 30 September – 5 October. However,the individual does births occur in June – August and even in September. In thestudy of the pregnant state of important women, we found inappropriatepregnancy at certain times.
