• The onset of lactation is with the birth of the calf.
• The highest yield is reached after five to six weeks of
lactation and maintained for some weeks.
• Thereafter the yield decreases until the end of
lactation.
• The lactation ends as the dry period starts.
• Lactation and milk yield depend on both genetic and
non-genetic factors.
• The genetic influence is due to species, breed, and
individual.
• The non-genetic factors are management, amount
and quality of feed and skill of the farmer to detect
heat and illnesses.
• Factors which are outside the farmer’s control such as
climate, temperature, humidity etc. also influence
lactation and milk yield.
FEED FOR MURRAH BUFFALO
Feed for buffaloes goes as below:
• (1) Total feed should be 10 % of their body
weight, assuming a buffalo is of 500 Kgs,
they should get 50 kgs of feed.
• (2) 35 kg Green fodder, 10 kg dry fodder
and 5 kg concentrate feed, dry fodder is to
fill their stomach, and min 40 - 50 lts of
water.
• Concentrate feed should be calculated on the
basis of how much a buffalo produces milk like
500 grams of concentrate should be give for
each its of milk produced by a buffalo, and
similarly 4-5 its of water per leter of milk
should be given.

  • 26. ORIGIN • The origin places of Murrah buffalo are India. Pakistan.
  • 27. DISTRIBUTION • The Murrah buffalo is originally from Rohtak, Jind and Hisar districts of Haryana; Nabha and Patiala districts of Punjab states of India; and in Pakistan, but has been used to improve the milk production of dairy buffalo in other countries, such as Italy, Bulgaria, Egypt and Pakistan.

MORPHOLOGICAL FEATURES • Body : Sound built, heavy and wedge shaped. • Head : Comparatively small. • Face : Comparatively long. • Neck : Comparatively long. • Body colour : Jet-black. • White markings on face and leg extremities may be there (2, 3), but are not generally preferred. • Tail : Long reaching up to fetlock joint (2, 3, and 6) with black or white switch up to (maximum) 8.0 inches (4).

  • 31. Male Female Average weight 550 Kg 450Kg Height 142 cm 132cm
  • 32. MILK PRODUCTION • The onset of lactation is with the birth of the calf. • The highest yield is reached after five to six weeks of lactation and maintained for some weeks. • Thereafter the yield decreases until the end of lactation. • The lactation ends as the dry period starts.
  • 33. • Lactation and milk yield depend on both genetic and non-genetic factors. • The genetic influence is due to species, breed, and individual. • The non-genetic factors are management, amount and quality of feed and skill of the farmer to detect heat and illnesses. • Factors which are outside the farmer’s control such as climate, temperature, humidity etc. also influence lactation and milk yield.
  • 34. FEED FOR MURRAH BUFFALO Feed for buffaloes goes as below: • (1) Total feed should be 10 % of their body weight, assuming a buffalo is of 500 Kgs, they should get 50 kgs of feed. • (2) 35 kg Green fodder, 10 kg dry fodder and 5 kg concentrate feed, dry fodder is to fill their stomach, and min 40 - 50 lts of water.
  • 35. • Concentrate feed should be calculated on the basis of how much a buffalo produces milk like 500 grams of concentrate should be give for each its of milk produced by a buffalo, and similarly 4-5 its of water per leter of milk should be given.
