  • The study of the detailed composition of milk is mainly limited to the few commercially exploited animals such as the cow (Bos taurus), sheep (Ovis aries), goat (Capra hircus), camel (Camelus bactrianus), water buffalo (Buabalus bubalis) and yak (Bos grunniens) (Jennes and Patton 1976; Oftedal 1984; Park and Haenlein 2004). For most other animals, the information is limited to the content of the major nutrients which are not studied in more detail (Landete-Castillejos et al. 2000; Gjostein et… CONTINUE READING
