Multi-stage index selection for enhancing milk production in Indian buffaloes



Multi-stage index selection for enhancing milk production in Indian buffaloes



Proceedings of II World Buffalo Congress held in India during 12-16 December 1988 Volume II Genetics and breeding, digestive physiology and nutrition: 95-101



Data on 1340 buffaloes were used to compute genetic parameters for body weight, age at 1st calving and 1st-lactation milk yield. Using these parameters, selection indices were constructed to improve overall economic genetic merit.
