Abstract

The effect of season of calving on production performance of “Purnathadi” buffaloes was studied. The calving of the buffaloes were not equally distributed in all month of the year. However the maximum number of calving occurred in rainy season followed by winter and summer. Season had significant (P<0.01) effect on the milk yield, lactation length, dry period and calving interval. It was observed that the buffaloes calved during summer season especially in the month of February had longest lactation length (321 days), dry period (249.90 days) and highest milk yield (1205.07 liters) per lactation
