Age and days open correction factors and repeatability estimates for yield and interval traits in Egyptian buffaloes



Age and days open correction factors and repeatability estimates for yield and interval traits in Egyptian buffaloes



Egyptian Journal of Animal Production 31(2): 163-177



Data from 2673 records of 653 Egyptian buffaloes (calving from 1970 to 1985) obtained from 3 farms belonging to the Egyptian Ministry of Agriculture were used. Mean of total (TMY), 305-day (305-MY) and annual (AMY) milk yield were 1687, 1576 and 1011 kg respectively. Means of days in milk (DIM), days dry (DD) and calving interval (CI) were 301, 226 and 524 days respectively.
