Abstract: This study was undertaken to evaluate the performances of economic trait of different dairy cows under village condition. The result showed that the average milk production of Holstein-Friesian cross, Sahiwal cross, Sindhi cross and indigenous dairy cows were 6.29±3.16, 4.72±1.01, 3.73±1.10 and 2.10±0.697 l per day, respectively. The average length of lactation period for Holstein-Friesian, Sahiwal and Sindhi cross and indigenous dairy cows were 263±24.73, 256.31±24.31, 255.86±27.58 and 230.62±30.68 respectively. The average post-partum heat periods of Holstein-Friesian, Sahiwal and Sindhi cross and indigenous dairy cows were 98.75±40.58, 97.63±36, 03, 114.65±21.24 and 108.46±36.32 days, respectively. The calving interval of Holstein-Friesian, Sahiwal and Sindhi cross and indigenous dairy cows were 373.25±33.25, 383.42±34.44 , 397.77±37.07 and 418.78±36.74 days, respectively. The average length of dry periods of Holstein-Friesian, Sahiwal and Sindhi cross and indigenous dairy cows were 127±46.66,136.05±23.42, 138.39±41.78 and 170±68.89 days, respectively. It was concluded that economic trait, productive and reproductive performances of indigenous cows were inferior to crossbred dairy cows.
