The objective of this study was to determine the effect of BCS on milk production and reproductive disorders in Nili-Ravi buffalo under field conditions of Pakistan. The data was collected from 55 small holder farms from districts Kasur (n=26) and Okara (n=29) respectively. Data regarding milk production and reproductive disorders were collected by trained veterinarian. The result showed that buffaloes having high BCS (4, 5) have significantly (P>0.05) higher milk production as compared to low BCS (1, 2). Similarly, data showed that reproductive disorders were significantly higher (P>0.05) in low BCS (1, 2) as compared to high BCS (4, 5).
