Milch Breed or Dairy Breeds

The cows of milch breeds are relatively high milk producer, but their bullocks are generally of poor quality draft.The cows of this group are high milk yielders with extended lactation periods. The bullocks are of poor draught qualities. These cattle are well built with strong limbs. e.g Deoni, Gir, Sindhi and Sahiwal. The cows in domestic usage for milk are non-descriptive types.
