Abstract

The Marathwadi buffaloes inhabit Marathwada region particularly the district of Parbhani, Beed,
Jalna and part of adjoining districts of Maharashtra State. Marathwadi buffaloes on account of the
sizable population contributes significantly to the economy of the farmers. The studies on physicochemical
properties of Marathwadi buffalo milk recorded the mean values for specific gravity,
acidity and pH at 1.031 + 0.001, 0.154 + 0.001 and 6.544 + 0.007, respectively. Highly significant
correlation coefficients existed for the specific gravity and acidity. The comparative differences in
these parameters with those of Nagpuri buffalo milk were minimum.
