A note on the effect of body weight at first calving on first lactation yield in Sahiwal and its exotic crossbreds



A note on the effect of body weight at first calving on first lactation yield in Sahiwal and its exotic crossbreds



Indian Journal of Animal Sciences 49(3): 219-222



Data collected during 1961-1975 on 893 Holstein-Friesian (HF) X Sahiwal, 486 Sahiwal X (HF X Sahiwal), 229 Brown Swiss X Sahiwal, and 297 Sahiwal heifers were analysed. Heifers were allotted to 7 weight groups according to body weights at calving from less than or equal to 250 to more than or equal to 451 kg, and data on 1st-lactation milk production are tabulated. Generally, milk production was highest in BS X Sahiwals.
