Abstract

Effect of watering frequency on milk production, milk fat, SNF and TS was studied in crossbred cows. The DM intake was slightly higher in twice-a-day (13.59 kg) watering group. The average milk production was decreased by 16 per cent due to restriction of watering frequency from ad libitum to twice-a-day where as, increased by 16.53 per cent when watering frequency increased to thrice-a-day. There was no significant effect of watering frequency on SNF and TS content of milk. However it was further observed that thrice-a-day watering was sufficient to maintain the normal SNF and TS content of milk
