Effect of season on variation in milk composition of Jersey and Jersey-cross F1 cows of Assam



Effect of season on variation in milk composition of Jersey and Jersey-cross F1 cows of Assam



Indian Veterinary Journal 55(10): 792-797



Samples were obtained from 20 Jersey cows in 1st lactation and 20 Jersey cross cows in 1st-3rd lactation during Aug. 1971-July 1972. The seasons were SW monsoon from June to Sept., post-monsoon from Oct. to Nov., winter from Dec. to Feb. and summer monsoon from March to May. Av. sp. gr. of milk was 1.03 over all seasons for both Jersey and Jersey cross cows. Milk fat contents in the 4 seasons resp. were 4.93, 4.45, 5.08 and 5.60% for Jersey and 5.45, 4.90, 5.62 and 6.21% for Jersey cross cows.
