The study investigated the effect of dietary supplementation of bypass fat (BPF) on complete lactation milk production (qualitative and quantitative) performance with reproductive parameters of Murrah buffaloes (Bubalus bubalis). Twenty-four Murrah buffaloes just after parturition divided into two homogenous groups of 12 buffaloes each on the basis of their parity and milk production. The first group served as control (C) and fed basal diet consisting of concentrate mixture, green roughages (sorghum/maize/barseem), and wheat straw as per the requirements, while another group was fed control diet with supplementation of BPF @ 1.5% of the milk yield. The plane of nutrition between two groups remained comparable except the supplementation of bypass fat, which leads to numerical increased of milk yield 9.43 vs. 8.99 kg/day. However, fat corrected milk (FCM) yield was significantly higher (P<0.05) in treatment group as compared to the control group. The other compositional parameters of milk between the two groups remained comparable. The reproductive performance of the Buffaloes (number of days in the first heat, service period and no of AI/conception) between two groups also remained comparable. Hence it may be concluded that supplementation of bypass fat is beneficial for increasing the fat percentage as well as FCM production in a full-length lactation study without adversely affecting the reproductive performance of the Murrah buffaloes.
