Genetic studies on part and complete lactation milk yield in Nili buffaloes



Genetic studies on part and complete lactation milk yield in Nili buffaloes



Indian Journal of Dairy Science 42(1): 23-26



Heritability estimates of monthly, cumulative monthly and 300-day lactation yields of 602 Nili buffaloes sired by 98 bulls were determined from data collected between 1950 and 1985. Heritability of monthly milk yield ranged from 0.074 in month 6 to 0.175 in month 4. Heritability of cumulative monthly yield reached a peak of 0.293 in month 4, and thereafter milk yield appeared to be influenced more by the temporary environment.
