A brief review of lactation curve models for predicting milk yield and various factors influencing the lactation curve in Murrah buffalo

Author(s):

Abstract:
Throughout the lactation, milk production is a continuous physiological function that describes the rate of milk secretion as lactation progresses. Even when environmental and managerial elements are constant, the biometrical features of lactation differ amongst genetic groups. Despite of different quantitative levels of milk production, the trend of milk production exhibits the same tendency of an early period of rapid growth up to a peak, followed by a more or less gradual decrease. Different models have been tested for their capacity to describe milk yield patterns as well as forecast 305-day cumulative milk yield using daily milk yield lactation records.
