Abstract:

Post influence of operation flood made India a leading global milk producer at the expense of decline in indigenous cattle population replaced by high milk producing exotic crossbred cattle. Recent times exotic crossbreds often suffer of mammary gland infection in compared to indigenous population results in economic loses and increased cost of production. With an aim to understand the simple morphology of teat and milk quality of indigenous cattle and exotic crossbred we formulated the following experiment, in which HF crossbred with greater teat diameter are susceptible to mammary infection compared indigenous cattle with smaller diameter. The greater distance difference between front and rear teat of HF crossbred might accounts for its high milk holding capacity but it doesn’t show any significant difference of mean teat day milk yield compared to Deoni. Low milk somatic cell count of Deoni could be a reason for low incidence of mammary infection in compared to HF crossbred.
