Abstract

The major components of economically useful traits in cattle dairy productivity, which conducted the selection is milk productivity and reproductive ability of cows. Studies conducted on animals Ukrainian black and white dairy cattle in the «Milk River» farm in the Sokal and Brody offices breeding reproducers «Breeder» Lviv region and plant breeding «Yamnytsya» Ivano–Frankivsk region. Ukrainian black and white dairy breed in the western region of Ukraine is characterized by good reproductive ability. Depending on the husbandry and lactation duration, service period lasted within 87.4 121.5 day, intercalving period within 364 402.6 day, dry period within 47.3 72.9 day, the fertility index was 46.3 48.0, coefficient of reproductive ability within 0.92–0.99,  output of calves per 100 cows within 91.8 98.8. The duration of pregnancy in cows of different  farms and lactations were in range 277 283.5 day and meet the requirements of the physiological norm. It has been shown that the milk yield of cows depends on the parameters of reproductive capacity. The correlation between duration of service–period and intercalving period, and milk yield, milk fat in most cases was positive. Correlation dry period duration and parameters of milk yield changed from negative to positive. Depending on the husbandry, lactation and index the impact share of service–period duration on milk yield was 7.0 29.7, for intercalving period 8.8 31.8, for dry period 9.2 – 23.8% respectively.
