Genetic study on relative efficiency of milk production in crossbreds (Holstein x Sahiwal) as compared to purebred Sahiwal cattle



Genetic study on relative efficiency of milk production in crossbreds (Holstein x Sahiwal) as compared to purebred Sahiwal cattle



Indian vet. J 41: 169-174



Data on 1st lactations of 207 crossbreds kept on the southern plateau of India (temperate area) and of 306 crossbreds and 162 Sahiwals from the northern region (hot, dry area) were analysed. The body weight, milk yield and relative efficiency of milk production (pounds milk per pound body weight) of the southern region crossbreds averaged 923, 4462, and 4.8 lb. resp. v. 873, 4209 and 4.9 for northern region crossbreds and 839, 3691 and 4.4 lb. for Sahiwals.
