Abstract: A study was carried out to study the production performance of different strains of Deoni cattle, an indigenous dual-purpose cattle breed native to Bidar district of Karnataka and adjacent regions. Data on 184 Deoni cows in 13 villages and Livestock Research & Information Centre (Deoni), Hallikhed (B) in Bidar district of Karnataka state was collected as part of the Field Performance Recording Project. Though differences were non-significant, Balankya strain of Deoni cattle had higher lactation milk yield (1340.77 ± 82.922 kg) and peak yield (6.55 ± 0.308 kg), and Shevera strain had longer lactation length (295.32 ± 6.598 days). The Wannera strain had significantly higher milk fat (4.653 ± 0.0414%) and SNF (8.302 ± 0.0198%). The high lactation milk yield figures in the present study indicate significant potential for improvement of the breed.
