Factors affecting production performance of Tharparkar cattle

For 770 Tharparkar cows, lactation milk yield averaged 1935.6 kg, 300-day milk yield 1862.1 kg, lactation length 296.9 days, daily milk yield 6.54 kg, milk yield per day of calving interval 4.90 kg, and dry period 114.7 days.

The daughters (195) born to cows aged between 11-12 years produced more milk in the first lactation (4027[center dot]21[plus or minus]32[center dot]61 lbs.) as compared to the female offsprings of other age groups.
