Effect of oxytocin on let down and milking time in hard to milk buffaloes



Effect of oxytocin on let down and milking time in hard to milk buffaloes



Indian Journal of Animal Sciences 45(11): 833-836



The effect of oxytocin in different doses on let-down and milking time was investigated in 2 groups of hard-to-milk buffaloes. The mean values of let-down time in treated groups were lower in doses of 17.5 and 20 IU of oxytocin than in the control group. The let-down time in different animals was also highly significantly different. It varied from 5-300 s. The minimum milking period (157 s) was obtained in control than in the group treated with 12.5 IU oxytocin (409.6 s). This was highly significant. In buffaloes which are difficult to milk, injections of oxytocin are apparently economical for milk production in terms of decreased let-down time and increased milking time.
