This work aimed to test if milk preserved with bronopol can be reliably used for fatty acid determination. Dairy production and milk quality are often monitored regularly to assess performance and contribute to selection indices. With evidence that fat composition can be influenced by selective breeding, there might be an interest in using samples collected in routine testing to evaluate individual cow fatty acid profiles, contributing to breeding indices. However, most recording services use a… Expand
Preservation of Milk and Milk Products for Analytical Purposes
There is a need to uncover combinations of antibacterial agents and bacteriostatic antibiotics for preserving milk and milk products until analyzed. Expand
Effect of pre-analytical treatments on bovine milk acute phase proteins
The observed effects of heating and preservative use on milk APP should be taken into consideration when assaying samples which have undergone heat treatment as a result of international transfer regulations involving biological samples or samples needing chemical preservation prior to transport to laboratory.

Stability of milk fatty acid profile during simulated shipping for analysis by gas chromatography
Abstract Milk fat trans-10 C18:1 can be used in diagnosing low milk fat production on dairy farms because it is a specific marker of biohydrogenation-induced milk fat depression. Individual fattyExpand
Effect of storage and preservation of milk samples on the response of microbial inhibitor tests
It can be concluded that it would be convenient to store milk samples with azidiol at 4 °C and to carry out analyses within the first 48 h since milk sampling, because results are more reproducible if samples are stored with a preservative. Expand
Effects of different storage conditions, the farm and the stage of lactation on renneting parameters of goat milk investigated using the Formagraph method.
Assessment of goat milk coagulation properties using the Formagraph method is also achievable after freezing or Bronopol addition, as demonstrated in this study. Expand
Short communication: within-day variation in fatty acid composition of milk from cows in an automatic milking system.
In the present study, 225 milk samples were taken from 84 cows in a herd equipped with an automatic milking system and it was concluded that random milk samples may be used for analysis of fatty acid composition. Expand

Variation in fatty acid contents of milk and milk fat within and across breeds.
The repeatability estimate obtained in the present study may suggest the existence of moderate additive genetic variance for the fatty acid profile within each breed, and genetic improvement of the nutritional quality of milk fat based on fatty acid profiles might be possible. Expand
Influence of storage and preservation on fossomatic cell count and composition of goat milk.
The findings indicate that the freezing point of goat milk must be interpreted according to the preservative used, and the levels of milk constituents recorded in the BR-preserved samples were independent of both the storage temperature and age of milk sample. Expand
Comparing the fatty acid composition of organic and conventional milk.
Organic dairy farms in the United Kingdom produce milk with a higher PUFA content, particularly n-3 FA, throughout the year, however, knowledge of the effects of season, access to fresh grazing, or use of specific silage types could be used by producers to enhance the content of beneficial FA in milk. Expand
Potentials to differentiate milk composition by different feeding strategies.
The effect of the dietary intake of the cow on milk composition was investigated and milk from the extensive milk production system was found to approach the recommended unity ratio between n-6 and n-3, although extensive milkProduction also resulted in a lower daily milk yield. Expand
The fatty acid composition of milk fat as influenced by feeding oilseeds
The fatty acid composition of oilseeds such as canola are considered desirable from a human health perspective and thus their inclusion in the diet of dairy cattle as a means of achieving a more desirable fatty acid profile in milk fat may enhance the nutritive quality of milk. Expand
Effect of preservatives on immunoenzymatic methods for the analysis of aflatoxin M1 in ewe's milk.
The objective of this experiment was to prove whether some preservatives (Az or Br) could alter the detection of AFM1 in ewes' milk when ELISA tests were being used for the analysis. Expand

Attention has focused on milk fatty acids for their effects on human health, but future work should also address effects on health and reproductive function of cows offered diets designed to alter milk fatty acid profiles. Expand
Preservation and Storage Mechanisms for Raw Milk Samples for Use in Milk-Recording Schemes.
Under current methods of handling raw milk samples, refrigeration during the whole process of sampling, transportation, and until analysis, seems an ideal to attain to avoid significant reductions of fat values. Expand
Fatty acid composition of mountain milk from Switzerland: Comparison of organic and integrated farming systems
Abstract During a 12-month study, bulk-tank milk was collected monthly from 3 dairies each of which collected both organic and conventional milks (from integrated farming) in the mountain regions ofExpand
