BL41 is an autosomal microsatellite marker located at the region of bovine chromosome 3 (BTA3) which are well known for its lactogenic trait QTL property. In the present study, we have amplified the BL41 gene of Frieswal (HFx Sahiwal) crossbreed cattle of India. Genotyping of the BL41 was done by outsourcing. Analysis revealed that Frieswal cow genome has seven allelic pattern of BL41 microsatellite marker and among them 245 bp allele is most frequently distributed in this bred. Direct count heterozygosity, Unbiased heterozygosity and Polymorphic information content of BL41 studied were 0.78, 0.79 and 0.76 respectively. A higher level of fat (4.45±0.05) and protein (3.09±0.09) percentage were observed among 238 and 234 allele of Frieswal BL41 microsatellite marker, respectively.
