Abstract

The milk production of Anglo-Nubian, Barbari and Barbari $\times$ Black Bengal goats were compared. The respective average lactation yield of those genotypes were $171.27\;{\pm}\;16.90$, $88.22\;{\pm}\;8.67$ and $52.31\;{\pm}\;13.51$ kg; mean annual milk yield $208.41\;{\pm}\;24.57$, $117.13\;{\pm}\;12.44$ and $84.19\;{\pm}\;23.45$ kg; per day milk yield $0.82\;{\pm}\;0.07$, $0.61\;{\pm}\;0.05$ and $0.43\;{\pm}\;0.06$ kg and lactation length $207.67\;{\pm}\;7.36$, $143.89\;{\pm}\;6.67$ and $116.75\;{\pm}\;13.86$ days. All traits recorded were influenced significantly (p<0.01) by the genetic group. Introduction of Barbari genes to Black Bengal goats had a positive effect in improving milk yield.
