Abstract: The study was carried out to monitor the comparative milk production performance of cross-bred and indigenous lactating cows under rural environment in different parities. The data of 35 cross-bred and 52 indigenous lactating cows of five different parities were collected. The collected data shows that average daily milk yield and lactation yield of cross-bred lactating cows are 3.05 liter per cow per day and 698.2 liter per cow per lactation respectively which are not much higher than that of indigenous lactating cows, 2.14 liter per day per cow and 435.2 liter per cow per lactation. The result shows that average daily milk yields are higher in forth parity (3.75 lit. for cross-bred and 2.5 lit for indigenous cows) where average lengths of lactation are also high (250 days for cross-bred and 220 days for indigenous cows). It appears that third and fourth parities cross-bred and indigenous cows were suitable for milk production among the other parities studied.
