Abstract


The biological material of buffaloes in this area shows favorable characteristics in the direction of milk productionwith a total length of lactation almost close to the normal one, but the interval between births is quite high. Pure milkfat content on total lactation is 6.98% and 6.96% for normal lactation, with variations from the first lactation of7.27% to 6.86% in the ninth lactation. The time of the dry period shows variation between 80.84 and 142.84 daysand calving interval between 375.91 and 435.48 days.
