Abstract:

The dairy enterprise is very crucial for developing countries to generate the income of poor people of rural areas. In present investigation, the milk yields were correlated with different type traits in early, mid lactation and overall. They showed that the negative or positive association with milk yields and composition n at early and mid lactation. In early lactation stage, the type traits such as chest width, rump width, udder depth, rear leg set rear view, rear udder height, fore udder attachment and front teat position were positively associated with milk production (yields). On other hand, stature, chest width, udder depth, udder cleft and rear udder heights were positively correlated with milk yields in mid lactation. Overall milk production, the positive association between type traits such as stature (r = 0.369), chest width (r = 0.338), rump angle (r =0.333), rear leg set rear view (r = 0.158), rear udder height (r = 0.069) and fore udder attachment (r = 0.207) with milk yields. Beside this, stature only traits which were positively and significantly correlated with milk yields.
