A note on comparative study of persistency and its association with peak and total yield in dairy cattle



A note on comparative study of persistency and its association with peak and total yield in dairy cattle



Indian Journal of Dairy Science 42(1): 96-98



Monthly (30 days) milk production records from 974 normal lactations of Friesian (HF) X Sahiwal crossbred cows comprising 84 (i) 3/4 HF, 125 (ii) 5/8 HF, 49 (iii) 1/2 HF and 137 (iv) 3/8 HF were statistically analysed. Estimates of persistency, based upon coeff. of variation amongst monthly records, were in the order (i) > (ii) = (iv) > (iii), but when based upon the ratio value of total yield:peak yield were in the order (ii) > (iii) > (i) > (iv).
