    Buffaloes are the most valuable gene pool that they are popularly called the "black pearl" or the golden gene pool of the animal husbandry of the republic. An important problem today is to identify the genetic potential of milk productivity, milk fat and milk protein of the Azerbaijan buffalo breed. Thus, this article studied the milk productivity of the Azerbaijan buffalo breed, in the DUANE-S farm of the Barda region of the republic. In the experiment to assess buffaloes' milk productivity, control milking was carried out with the determination of fat and protein in milk, the amount of 1% milk and milk with a basic fat of 3.6%, the average daily milk yield, the yield of milk fat and protein were calculated, the lactation period, the rate of milk transfer were determined. Two groups of 7 heads each were formed according to the principle of pairs-analogues, taking into account age, live weight, udder shapes as to the suitability for machine milking and the physiological state of buffaloes. Insemination was carried out artificially, but for the heifers of the first group, the seed of the breeding Azerbaijani buffalo-producer "Goshgar-4345", the successor of the well-known genealogical line "Chardakh-342", which in turn was the successor of the legendary line "Kazbek-2", was used, to pass to their offspring their valuable breeding qualities, to obtain large quantitative and high-quality milk from first-calf heifers. The amount of milk produced in the first group on average per head was 1196 kg with a fat content of 8.1% and with a content of protein of 4.8%, this indicator was very close to the indicators of buffaloes from the second group, with a difference in milk yield of 109 kg and 0.2% for protein, which indicates the correct selection of the buffalo-producer.
