Abstract

In a field study with Marathwadi buffaloes reared by farmers in villages of Parbhani district of Maharashtra state, it was observed that the overall mean for lactation length, lactation milk yield and dry period averaged as 313.91 ± 0.34 days, 1121.52 ± 0.84 lits and 182 ± 0.82 days, respectively. The season of calving had significant influence on lactation length only, while lactation milk yield was significantly (P<0.05) influenced by order of lactation. The lowest yield was recorded in buffaloes of second lactation while significantly higher yield was found in 6 th lactation. Other lactational yields were at par with each other
