 Abstract

 

This study was performed at the Danial dairy farm, Karachi. A total of 150 Holstein-Friesen cows under 3rd lactation were selected from 300 cows and divided into 5 groups. The findings of our study indicated that the daily water intake was found significantly maximum (47.001.45) in group-B and minimum (43.330.88) in group-D. Statistically significant differences were seen in group D with the rest of the groups. The maximum daily feed intake (19.662.40) was recorded in group-A, while the minimum daily feed intake (15.000.57) was recorded in group-B. There was a significant difference in the daily feed intake for group E with groups A and B. The maximum weekly milk production (40.001.45 kg) was recorded in group-A, while the minimum weekly milk production (34.000.88 kg) was recorded in group-B. However, there were significant differences in the weekly milk production among groups A and B. In conclusion, Holstein-Friesian cows produced significantly higher weekly milk production under group A (control), which offered 24 h of water and was fed ad-libitum compared to all other groups.

Key words: Diet, milk, feed, water.
