Abstract:
For present investigation, 86 purebred Sahiwal cattle of Bull Mother Experimental Farm and Government Cattle Breeding Farm located at the campus of College of Veterinary Science & Animal Husbandry, Anjora, Durg, Chhattisgarh were randomly divided into 5 groups on the basis of their physiological status viz. dry cows, early lactating cows, mid lactating cows, mid pregnant cows and late pregnant cows to measure the association between centre of gravity and linear type traits. All the linear type traits were measured and scored as per procedure described by International Committee for Animal Recording, 2018. During dry/non-pregnant stage, various significant correlations were observed for chest width/rear leg set-rear view (+ve; p<0.01), rump angle (+ve; p<0.05) and udder depth (-ve; p<0.01). During early lactation, for udder depth (+ve; p<0.01), Fore udder attachment (+ve; p<0.05) and chest width (-ve; p<0.05), during mid lactation for chest width (+ve; p<0.01), rear leg set-rear view/rear udder height (-ve; p<0.05) and during late pregnancy for chest width/udder cleft (+ve; p<0.05). The results implicated the careful selection of animals with good conformation and proper floor management to prevent lameness due to varying positions of centre of gravity is important.
