Abstract

The Least Square Means (LSM) for Lactation Milk Yield (LMY), Lactation Period (LP), Dry
Period (DP) and Inter-calving Period (ICP) in Khillar Cows were 531.22±19.86, 231.68±8.00,
221.90±15.54 and 467.33±15.86 days, respectively. The season showed significant (p<0.01)
influence on LMY and LP whereas it was non significant on DP and ICP. The period of calving has
highly significant (p0.01) influence on al the traits under study except DP. The influence of parity
was highly significant (p0.01) on DP and ICP and as non significant on LP effect in Khillar breed
of cattle.
