Diets did not affect DM intake of concentrate and silage among buffaloes. Milk yield got improved (4.93 to 5.63 kg d-1) (P<0.05) in buffaloes fed by a diet D2 (CP;19.18%) as compared to diet D1 (CP; 17.82%). In general, D1 and D2 diets did not cause any difference in the milk compositions examined of buffaloes on the other hand, using of sunflower cake should be encouraged on the buffalo’s farm.
