From the study, it was reveled that the average milk production per lactation per cow was 1820.75, 1861.00, 1871.00 and 1890 liters for first, second, third and fourth lactation, respectively. There was an increasing tendency in milk yield from first lactation to fourth lactation. Average lactation length of respective cows were 335.50?29.26, 333.12?29.97, 325.87?19.91 and 323.87?13.75 days for first, second, third and fourth lactation, respectively.
