This research was aimed at evaluating dairy cows nutritional status on milk production and quality in different rainfall. The research was done from September 2012 until June 2013 for field survey and laboratory analysis. Body weight, feed intake, nutrient contents, milk production, and milk quality have been measured and analyzed. The data were analyzed using T-test to compare the differences rainfall effect, correlation between all parameters heve been tested and regression model of milk production and quality have been made based on the correlation test. The results showed that in average dairy cows kept by small holder famer under KPSBU administration has been offered feed to fulfilled their nutrients requirement,except for mineral Ca. During early rainy, milk production, lactose, protein, and solid non fat (SNF) tends to be lower, but milk quality especially fat content of milk were higher. No satisfaction regression of milk production and quality model could be made from the parameters used which show that farmers did not consider cow performance in feeding their cattle.
