Cumulative part production records as an aid to selection in Murrah buffaloes



Cumulative part production records as an aid to selection in Murrah buffaloes



Indian Journal of Dairy Science 41(3): 346-350



Data obtained over a period of 10 yr from 159 Murrah buffaloes and over 15 yr from 252 at 2 military dairy farms were analysed. Cumulative part yields (CPY) calculated every 30 days from day 60 to day 300 of 1st lactation were not significantly affected by season of calving, but farm had a significant effect from day 210 onwards, and period of calving had an effect at all times. Heritabilities of 1st lactation CPY were low.
