Abstract

Analysis of 502 records pertaining to 169 Murrah buffaloes maintained at Buffalo Research Centre, CCS HAU, Hisar over a period of 8 years (1985-1992) revealed that peak yield and days to attain peak yield were significantly (P< 0.01) influenced by year and season of calving. Winter calvers had significantly higher peak yield than those calving in monsoon. Overall mean values for peak yield and days to attain peak yield was 10.99 ± 0.15 kg and 62.64 ± 2.79 days, respectively. The parity had significant effect (P< 0.01) only on peak yield which increased from first parity (9.71 kg) to fifth parity (11.74 kg).
