Data on 920 buffaloes were analyzed for peak yield and days to attain peak yield   consisting of three Genetic groups viz. Graded Murrah, Diara buffaloes and non-descript buffaloes. Buffaloes were enumerated from 145 dairy units located in and around Patna Bihar. Genetic groups had shown highly significant (png) and 5.82 lit. (1st lactation ) to 9.40 lit. (3rd lactation). Farming system and lactation order did not show significant effect on days to attain peak yield, while location had non-significant effect on both the traits.
