Abstract

The objective of the study was to investigate the effect of breed and feed supplementation on ovarian activity, oestrus detection rate and milk yield. The results indicated that supplemented cows ovulated earlier postpartum than unsupplemented cows. Crossbred cows were superior to indigenous cows in terms of milk production.
