Effect of different housing management systems on the milk production performance of buffaloes


, : Effect of different housing management systems on the milk production performance of buffaloes. Indian Journal of Animal Production and Management 9(2-3): 67-73

36 buffaloes were housed after calving in a loose housing system (group 1), as group 1 but tethered for milking and feeding (group 2), or kept mainly tethered (group 3). The average monthly milk yield over the lactation was highest in group 2 (215.5+or-5.73 kg vs. 205.6+or-6.21 and 206.6+or-5.73 in groups 3 and 1 respectively; P<0.05). Monthly milk fat and SNF yields were also highest in group 2.
