The present study was carried out to compare the yields of casein and albumin in buffalo and dairy milk samples 1 and 2 over a period of 10 successive days.  Milk contains high-quality protein and fat. Presence of calcium, magnesium, selenium, riboflavin, vitamin B12 and pantothenic acid makes milk a nutritionally important component in human life. Results from our studies indicate that the mean values of casein content to be 5.53g% (buffalo milk sample), 3.56g% (dairy milk sample 1) and 3.38g% (dairy milk sample 2) over the 10 day isolation period. However, the casein content in buffalo milk sample was higher by about 2g/% as compared to dairy milk samples 1 and 2. There was no significant variation in albumin content in all the 3 milk samples, buffalo milk sample [2.41g%], dairy milk sample 1 [2.27g%] and dairy milk sample 2 [1.95 g%]).
