Variation in milk fat content and fatty acid composition of Jersey and Friesian cattle

Variation in milk fat content and fatty acid composition of Jersey and Friesian cattle

Breeding responding to client needs Association for the Advancement of Animal Breeding and Genetics Proceedings of the Twelfth Conference, Dubbo, NSW, Australia 6th-10th April 1997: Part 1: 283-291

Milk samples from 24 Jersey and 24 Friesian cows (aged 3-12 years) in mid to late lactation (3-9 months) were analysed for milk fat content and fatty acid composition. Jerseys had more milk fat than Friesians (5.7 vs. 4.5%). Jersey milk had less C18:1(9) than Friesian milk (19.7 vs. 21.4%; P<0.001). Delta 9-denaturase activity was significantly higher in Friesian than in Jersey milk.
