Abstract:
This study was planned to find out interrelationship among various milk production and milk composition traits in Gir and Mulki cattle of Narmadapuram division of Madhya Pradesh state. The data was collected from 75 healthy cows comprises of 40 Mulki and 35 Gir cattle in. Various milk production traits including daily milk yield (DMY), milk yield (MY) and lactation length (LL) were recorded. About 50 ml milk was collected from each cow to analyse various milk composition traits viz., Fat%, SNF%, Density, Lactose%, Protein%, water content, pH and Freezing point (FP) etc. The data generated was subjected to correlation coefficient analysis. The correlation between different milk yield and milk composition traits was ranged from -0.621 (LL and DMY) to +0.714 (DMY and MY) in Gir cattle and from -0.321 (FP and pH) to +0.940 (DMY and MY) in Mulki cattle. Milk yield showed positive correlation with DMY, LL and density, whereas it showed negative correlation with fat, protein and lactose percent in Gir cattle. In Mulki cattle, milk yield exhibited positive correlation with DMY, LL and protein (%), whereas it showed negative correlation with fat %, SNF %, lactose % and density. This study was the first attempt to study the correlation among various milk production and milk composition traits in Gir and Mulki cattle in Narmadapuram division of Madhya Pradesh state.
