Genetic and phenotypic variations of lactation length and total milk yield of Pakistani and Egyptian buffaloes



Genetic and phenotypic variations of lactation length and total milk yield of Pakistani and Egyptian buffaloes



Alexandria Journal of Agricultural Research 48(2): 11(en)-22(en)



Data collected on 756 and 1637 records representing 273 and 525 buffaloes from Pakistan and Egypt were utilized in this study. The objectives were to determine the effects of some environmental factors on lactation length and milk yield, to estimate genetic parameters and to compare the results obtained. The Pakistani buffaloes had longer lactation length and higher milk yield than the Egyptian buffaloes.
