Abstract:

The present study was conducted on 91 Tharparkar cows maintained at the Livestock Research Station, Beechwal, Bikaner for 11 years i.e. from 2006 to 2016. The data were analysed with the objective of performance appraisal of Tharparkar cattle with respect to production traits and to study the effect of genetic factor i.e. sire group and non genetic factors i.e. period and season of calving on production traits. The overall least-squares means for first lactation milk yield (FLMY), first lactation length (FLL), first lactation dry period (FDP), lactation milk yield per day of first lactation length (LMY/FLL) and lactation milk yield per day of first calving interval (LMY/FCI) were found to be 1832.99±42.43 kg, 283.65±7.65 days, 148.14±6.05 days, 6.18±0.14 kg/day and 4.03±0.12 kg/day. The effect of sire was found to be significant on first lactation production traits. The Period of calving had significant effect on FLL and LMY/FCI, while season of calving had no significant effect on first lactation production traits. The AFC had significant effect on FLMY and FLL.
