The effect of high concentrations of milk protein and milk fat on the specificity rates of several antibiotic residue screening tests was evaluated in this study. Milk was sampled from 60 Jersey and 30 Holstein cows at one milking and analyzed for beta-lactam residues using four antibiotic residue screening tests. Cows selected were not treated with an antibiotic for at least 30 d prior to sample collection, and milk was visibly normal. Before milk collection, quarter foremilk was aseptically… CONTINUE READING
