Abstract:
The aim of the study was to investigate the effect of temperament on let-down time, milking time, milk yield and milk flow rate in different months in Gir cows. The experiment was conducted on 32 milking Gir cows which were divided into four equal groups on the basis of their parity. The cows were selected on the basis of 15 days to 2 months after calving before starting the experiment. Milk let down time was recorded lowest for docile groups of animals (0.76 ± 0.03 min) followed by restless (0.88 ± 0.05 min), nervous (1.05 ± 0.06 min) and aggressive (1.11 ± 0.6 min) animals. The overall average let down time was recorded to 0.87± 0.02 min. Milking time was recorded to be lowest (2.69±0.03 min) in docile animals followed by restless (2.96 ± 0.04 min), nervous (2.99 ± 0.06 min) and aggressive (3.12 ± 0.06 min) animals. The overall average milking time was recorded to be 2.84 ± 0.02 min. Milk yield was recorded maximum in docile animals (3.07 ± 0.05 kg) followed by restless (2.76 ± 0.07 kg), nervous (2.51 ± 0.09 kg) and aggressive (2.32 ± 0.09 kg) animals. The overall average milk yield was recorded to be 2.82 ± 0.03 kg.
