The production performance from 213 cows maintained at H.F Project, Anand Agricultural University, Anand over a period from 1992-2007 were studied. The persistency of milk yield is one of the most important economic traits of dairy animals. The persistency of milk production was measured in Holstein Friesian cattle up to 42nd week of lactation and the overall persistency (%) for weekly milk production in first, second, third, fourth and fifth lactations were observed to be 84.45, 83.46, 83.40, 83.50 and 83.80 %, respectively. The present study revealed that the Holstein Friesian cattle have good persistency in milk production.
