Lactation period encompassed 268-392 days, entire lactation milk quantity reached 3,095-4,324 kg, and milkfat 122.25-204.25 kg. Over standard lactation period 2,408-5,222 kg of milk was produced. In standard lactation, correction was made to 4% FCM (fat corrected milk). Duration of the service period of cows was 42-172 days. Duration of the intercalving period was 339-451 days.
