Author: Fadlelmoula, A.A; Nekheila, Abu; Yousif, I.A
Abstract: This study was conducted to investigate the factors that have influence on the lactation traits of crossbred dairy cows in the Sudan; data comprising some productive traits such as milk yield/ lactation, average daily milk yield, lactation length and dry period were obtained from the University of Khartoum Farm and subjected to statistical analysis using the computer program (SAS15). The results revealed that parity had significant (p<0.01) effect on milk yield per lactation, average daily milk yield and dry period. While percentage total foreign blood and sire breed introduced variation on the productive traits namely: milk yield per lactation (p<0.01); average daily milk yield (p<0.01); lactation length (p<0.05) and dry period (p<0.01). Among the productive traits studied; only average daily milk yield was found to be affected by period of calving (p<0.01). However, lactation length was influenced by season x period of calving interaction.
