Abstract:
The study was conducted to establish baseline information pertaining to productive and reproductive performance of Malnad Gidda and its crossbred in Shivamogga District of Karnataka. The data from 286 animals reared by 98 farmers from Thirtahalli, Hosanagara and Sagara taluks of Shivamogga district were collected through a structured questionnaire. The parameters such as age at puberty (25.15±0.29 months); age at first calving (39.32±2.99 months); dry period (6.22±1.26 months); calving interval (13.68±2.55 months); gestation period (282.14±9.03 days); service period (136.73±10.03 days); lactation length (258.22 ± 10.95 days); milk yield per day (3.69±0.32 kg); total milk yield (227.19±8.31 kg); days to reach peak milk yield (46.19±0.51 day); birth weight of the new born calf (8.71±0.45 kg); time taken for placental expulsion of placenta (4.63±0.39 hours); onset of postpartum estrous (77.64±1.98 days); Duration of estrous period (15.25±1.67 hours); time of ovulation (15.15 ± 1.7 hours) and length of estrus cycle (22.63±2.96. days) were recorded. There was no significant difference (p>0.05) in the productive and reproductive parameters of cattle among three taluks Sagar, Hosanagar and Thirthahalli. These parameters are in similar line to that of other dwarf breeds of cattle like Punganur, Kasaragod and Vechur.
