The data consisting of 1274 records on 441 Surti buffaloes, spread over a period of eighteen years (1972 to 1989), maintained at Central Cattle Breeding Farm, Dhamrod, (Gujarat) Tndia was analysed for the present study. The averages of various lifetime traits were 4271.64+81.80 & 5943.24±144.36 kg for LTP-1 and LTP-2, respectively; 1442.61±22.74 & 1939.40±33.25 days for PL-1 and PL-2, respectively; and 3.04 ± 0.06 & 3.11±0.07 kg for MY/PL-1 and MY/PL-2, respectively. The heritability for lifetime production traits was moderate to high. In most of the cases, high coefficients of genetic and phenotypic correlation were observed among various lifetime production traits in the present study.
