Ajit Singh, Akhand Pratap
The study was conducted physicochemical properties of raw milk from twenty indigenous and twenty exotic cows. It was found that the total bacterial count and the somatic cell count in milk samples were within the threshold limit values specified by relevant legal regulations. Milk from water content, fat, whey protein, total calcium, colloidal calcium and soluble calcium was found significantly in indigenous and exotic cow, but dry matter, not fat solids, lactose, total protein, casein and ionic calcium was found non significantly in indigenous and exotic cow milk composition. The surface area of fat globules (m2/ml) milk is higher in indigenous cow than exotic cow non-significantly. The surface area of fat globules (m2/ml) fat in higher in exotic cow than indigenous cow non-significantly.
