Abstract

The least square means of fat percent in the milk of Jersey X Local, Holstein Friesian X Local and Local cattle of Assam were 5.100 ± 0.087, 4.177 ± 0.087 and 5.117 ± 0.087 respectively. Corresponding values of SNF percent were 8.923 ± 0.072, 8.827 ± 0.072 and 8.848 ± 0.072 and those of specific gravity were 1.0310 ± 0.0003, 1.0314 ± 0.0003 and 1.0310 ± 0.0003 respectively. The fat percent differed highly significantly (p
