Abstract: This research was performed to investigate the effect of late lactation period on milk biochemical taste parameters such as fat and acidity of machine milked cows and to show these biochemical parameters during last month of late lactation. Cows were fed standard diet for lactation period. In the study, a total of 40 cow milk samples were collected and examined from DIMES Company during January month. The milk fat rates were lower (p<0.05) for cows in first week (2.8%) than last week (3.3%). There were statistically no significant differences between the weeks for milk acidity (sH and pH) values of machine milked cows. The milk fat and acidity values (sH and pH) during study were favorable for desired taste and consumer choice.
