Five hundred Marathwadi female buffaloes from 1st to 5th parity was studied for their morphometric characters of udder and teat such as udder length, udder width, udder depth, teat length and teat diameter etc. The buffaloes were selected from five tehsils of Latur district and four groups were made based upon the stage of lactation i.e. up to 7th week, 7th to 14th week, 14th to 21st week and above 21st week. The phenotypic and morphometric characters were studied to know the correlation between selected characters and stage of lactation in different tahsils of Latur District. Maximum length of udder was recorded during 14-21 weeks of lactation, while minimum length was recorded during initial phase within 0-7 weeks of lactation.Pages: 211-215 | Views: 14 | Downloads: 10Download Full Article: Click Here
