Seasonal variation in detailed milk composition was studied in 29 NZ Friesian and 19 US Holstein heifers grazing pasture or fed a total mixed ration (TMR) for an entire lactation. This was done to determine whether variation could be eliminated by more consistent nutrition at a higher plane. US Holsteins produced milk with lower concentrations of the major milk solids fat and protein, but higher concentrations of lactose, than NZ Friesians. More detailed milk composition, however, was… CONTINUE READING
