Abstract:

The research study was conducted during the year 2018-2019 on 256 Deoni cattle in 13 villages and Livestock Research &Information Centre (Deoni), Hallikhed (B) in Bidar district of Karnataka state. The study was carried out to find the morphological characteristics of udder and teat and its relation with lactation milk yield (LMY) in deoni cattle which was included in the project “Field Performance Recording of Deoni cattle in Bidar district” as part of Rashtriya Gokul Mission. The strain-wise and parity-wise various shapes of udder and teat were recorded. The finding of the study revealed that overall frequency percentage in shape of the udder was recorded viz; bowl shaped (49.61%), goaty shaped (14.06%), pendulous shaped (33.20 %) and round shaped udder (3.12%), respectively. Whereas, overall frequency percentage in shape of the teat was recorded viz., bottle shaped (15.62 %), cylindrical (42.96 %), funnel (32.81%) and pear-shaped teats (8.60%). Similarly, Bowl shaped udder has highest LMY (1177.71 kg) followed by goaty (1134.88 kg), pendulous (1095.62 kg), while least LMY was recorded in round shaped udder (976.84 kg). However, cylindrical shape teat has highest LMY (1211.02 kg) followed by bottle (1102.42 kg), funnel (1063.64 kg) and least LMY was recorded in pear- shaped teat (1007.97 kg). The findings of the study over LMY were non-significant effect of udder and teat shape on lactation milk yield.
