The present study was undertaken with the objective to study the Physical and microbial characterization of fresh urine and dung of indigenous (Sahiwal) cow. The indigenous cows (Sahiwal) present at Livestock Research Centre, National Dairy Research Institute, Karnal was selected for urine and dung collection for bio-chemical estimation. The results of the present study revealed that most of the physical parameters of lactating cows and heifers fresh dung and urine were found similar and differed non-significantly except, pH content of urine which was found significantly (P
<0.01) higher in lactating Sahiwal cows as compared to the heifers. Whereas, the Total bacterial count (TBC) and Total Yeast and Mould count (TYMC) was found significantly higher in cow dung and urine as compared to heifers.
