Lactoperoxidase and thiocyanate content in goat milk from two Spanish breeds throughout 5 mo of lactation has been investigated. Mean lactoperoxidase for milk from Verata and Murciano-Granadina goats was .95 and 2.15 units/ml, respectively. Very low concentrations, .03 units/ml for Verata and .20 units/ml for Murciano-Granadina, were found for the first 24 h after kidding. Highest concentrations were detected at the end of lactation (135 to 150 d) for Verata and in midlactation (60 to 75 d) for… CONTINUE READING
