The present investigation was undertaken in the Department of Animal Husbandry and Dairying, Dr.PDKV., Akola. The main objective of present investigation was to study the effect of lactation on composition and physico-chemical properties of local goat milk. During the entire study the fresh goat milk samples were collected from local goats in I, II, III and IV lactations of which four goats were in each lactation. The lactation had significant increasing effect on fat, protein, ash, TS, SNF, titratable acidity and viscosity. All milk components are gradually increased from I to IV lactation with exception of lactose and pH.
