The present study was conducted at dairy unit number 20, situated at Aarey milk colony, Goregaon, Mumbai and Department of Livestock Production and Management, Bombay Veterinary College, Mumbai. For the study 45 Murrah buffaloes were selected and they were divided into three equal groups of 15 each for early (0-90 days), mid (90-180 days) and late (180-270 days) lactation stage. From the results of experiment it was found that the fat percentage of milk yield showed significant difference amongst early and late and mid and late lactation respectively whereas non significant difference was observed between early and mid lactation stage. The protein percentage and lactose percentage in milk of Murrah buffaloes at different stages of lactation showed significant difference among the treatment groups.
