Factors affecting milking time, milk flow rate and let down time in cows and buffaloes



Factors affecting milking time, milk flow rate and let down time in cows and buffaloes



Indian Journal of Animal Production and Management 10(1-2): 34-37



A study was conducted on 453 milking animals (99 buffaloes, 28 Sahiwal, 123 Karan Swiss and 203 Karan Fries crossbred dairy cattle) to assess various factors affecting let-down time, milk flow rate and milking time. The experience (age) of the milker affected the let-down time significantly (P<0.01). Crossbred cows required sigificantly (P<0.01) less time for let down of milk as compared with indigenous cows and buffaloes.
