Feeding traits, nutritional status and milk production of dairy cattle and buffalo in small-scale farms in Terai, Nepal



Feeding traits, nutritional status and milk production of dairy cattle and buffalo in small-scale farms in Terai, Nepal



Asian Australasian Journal of Animal Sciences 19(2): 189-197



Twenty small-scale farms of two villages (A and B) were surveyed to identify the feeding traits, milk productivity and nutritional status of lactating cattle and buffalo in Terai, Nepal. Constituents and dry matter (DM) of feed supplied, body condition score (BCS), heart girth (HG), bodyweight (BW), milk yield (MY) and plasma metabolites were obtained in the pasture-sufficient, pasture-decreasing and fodder-shortage periods. Milk yield of 305-day lactation was estimated by the daily MY.
