The Milk Biochemical Parameters Having Economic Importance in Machine Milked Cows
O. Tekelioglu , M. Cimen and T. Bayril
 
Abstract: This research was aimed to investigate the effect of machine milking on milk biochemical components having economic importance. In the experiment, 10 Machine Milked (MM) and 10 suckled + Hand Milked (HM) cows were used. The milk fat rates were lower for MM animals in 1st, 2nd and 4th weeks (p<0.05). Protein and total solid rates of milks were similar for both groups during study. There was found positive correlation between milk fat and total solids (r = 0.53; p<0.05), but there were no significant correlations among other milk parameters. Suckling treatment (in HM group) to increase production of milk with maximum levels of milk fat is essential for achieving the economic benefits. Producers, who utilize the MM system during lactation should expect commercial milk to be low in fat content, which may affect cheese processing characteristics.
