Relationships between distribution of major milk proteins and milk yield



Relationships between distribution of major milk proteins and milk yield



Journal of Dairy Science 63(1): 141-147



Daily yield and composition of casein and serum proteins of milks from Holstein and Jersey cows were studied during two 9 day periods of lactation to determine whether selection for milk yield influences distribution of total protein between casein and serum fractions. Casein number, defined as casein/total protein as percentage, was the distribution criterion. Casein number of Holsteins was not associated with daily or mature equivalent yield of milk, estimated real producing ability or USA Department of Agriculture Cow Index for milk yield. In early lactation, Jerseys had 4.7% more protein as casein than Holsteins. The intralactation repeatability of casein number for Holsteins was 0.31. SD of casein number due to cow was 2.3.
