For present investigation, 40 cows maintained under loose housing system were included to studied the effect of various factors on the'quality of milk. The fat, SNF and TBC were lower in MMC (4.21, 8.55 and 11.40 X iO4) than HMC (4.45, 8.74 and 13.90 X 104) respectively. While TLC and EPC were higher in MMC ( 13.80 X 10 4 and 4.80 X 104) than HMC (11.50 X 104 and 4.40 X 104) respectively. The effect of methods of milking was significant (P <0.01) on all parameters of this investigation except EPC. Whereas, as the lactation advances, the values of fat, TLC and EPC first decline upto third month and raised significantly (P < 0.01) thereafter. Similarly, the values of fat, SNF, TLC and EPC were higher during evening hours than morning. The overall milk quality was better under machine milking as compared to hand milking
