Abstract:
A study was conducted in Malabari, Attappaddy Black and crossbred goats to find out the association between the udder morphology and milk production. The udder morphological traits included were Teat diameter (TD), Teat Length (TL), Udder Row Width (URW), Udder Column Width (UCW), Udder Depth (UD), Udder Circumference (UC), and Teat Height from Ground (THG). The mean daily milk yield were 252.80 ± 39.58 ml, 339.41 ± 40.66 ml, 373.22 ± 44.24 ml in Attappady, Malabari and crossbred goats, respectively. Milk yield was positively correlated with URW in Malabari goats while, Attappaddy goats with higher TD and TL produced more milk. In crossbred goats, milk yield had positive correlation with URW, UCW and UD.
