Abstract
Dairy records were collected from Elneshasheba Dairy Farm at Wad Medani, Sudan, to study the reproductive performance of crossbred dairy cows in the area. Age at first calving was the least for 62.5% exotic blood, and was significantly different from the two groups (50% and 75%) which were not significantly different from each other. The number of services/conception and gestation length were not significantly affected by the percentage of exotic blood or calving number. The percentage of exotic blood and calving number significnalty affected calving intervals. The birth weight of calves was significantly affected by calving number but not by the percentage of exotic blood.
