A study was conducted on the productivity of Murrah buffaloes raised by small holders in the rubber estate crops areas of North Sumatera. Milk production was measured the 24 hour sampling method at monthly intervals. Calves were weighed 1 to 4 days after birth. Average birth weight was 30.7+^1.30 kg, and was not influenced by parity of cow and month of birth. Milk yield per lactation was 1999.1+67.3 kg with lactation length of 8.8+0.25 months. Milk production was affected by month of calving while lactation length was influenced by month of calving and parity.
