Abstract: The present study was undertaken to study the effect of floor type and ventilation on the microbial quality and composition of buffalo milk in rural villages of district Jammu. The buffalo management practices were studied by means of designed questionnaires. Milk samples were collected and analyzed for milk physico-chemical composition, somatic cell count and microbiological quality. Ventilation had non-significant effect on milk physico-chemical composition. However, fat, protein, solid not fat and total solids were higher under proper ventilation milking conditions. The type of floor had significant (p<0.05) effect on somatic cell count of milk and microbiological quality of buffalo milk. Advanced management practices may be followed by farmers to improve the quality and composition of buffalo milk under rural conditions.
