Relationship between milk lactose content and indications of udder health in the first third of lactation

, : Relationship between milk lactose content and indications of udder health in the first third of lactation. Veterinarni Medicina 37(11): 595-604

Chemical analyses, pH evaluation, somatic cell counts, and NK mastitis tests were performed over a year on 662 bucket milk samples taken monthly in the first 3 months of lactation from cows of 2 breeds in 3 herds. The correlations obtained indicate that the lactose content can be used as an indication of udder health in the first third of lactation.
