The data were collected at 30 days interval from 4<sup>th</sup> day till 304<sup>th</sup> day post calving. The accuracy of prediction model was calculated by estimating R<sup>2</sup>-value. Analysis carried out revealed that when all the monthly test day records (1 to 11) were incorporated in an equation to predict first lactation 305 day or less milk yield, the accuracy (R<sup>2</sup>-value) was maximum with 97.06%. However, early best prediction of 305 days milk yield based on monthly test day milk yields was found up to 6<sup>th</sup> monthly test day milk record. The optimum equation had total four variables <em>viz</em>. 2<sup>nd</sup>, 4<sup>th</sup>, 5<sup>th</sup> and 6<sup>th</sup> monthly test day milk yield records, which gave an accuracy of prediction of 78.28%. Therefore, it is concluded that first lactation 305 days smilk yield could be predicted as early as 6<sup>th</sup> month of lactation with higher degree of accuracy.</p>}, number={2}, journal={Buffalo Bulletin}, author={Sharma, Hardik and Gajbhiye, Prakash Uttamrao and Ahlawat, Anshu Rampal and Dongre, Vilas Bhagwanrao}, year={2022}, month={Jun.}, pages={263–268} }
