by Yadav Sharma Bajagai Reduction in milk production is one of the major economic impacts of climatic stress in dairy cattle. Decrease in milk yield due to heat stress is more prominent in Holstein than in Jersey cattle [ 1 ] . Decreased synthesis of hepatic glucose and lower non esterified fatty acid (NEFA) level in blood during heat stress [ 2 , 3 , 4 ] causes reduced glucose supply to the mammary glands resulting low lactose synthesis which in turn ensues low milk yield [ 5 ] . Reduction in milk yield is further intensified by decrease in feed consumption by the animals to compensate high environmental temperature [ 5 , 6 ] .
