THE EFFECT OF INCOMPLETE COLOSTRUM MILKING ON ITS CONTENT AND ON TRIPSIN INHIBITOR LEVEL.
Krzysztof Sroka, Daniel Krowarsch, Tadeusz Szulc
Analyses on variability of trypsine inhibitor content in cow colostrum and its composition during first 5 milkings after parturition, in dependence with method of milking were performed. Cows were distributed into 3 groups: I - complete colostrum milking in successive milkings after parturition - control (18 cows); II - leaving approx. 30% of colostrum (more complete milking) in first 5 milkings after parturition (18 cows); III - leaving approx. 60% of colostrum (less complete milking) in first 5 milkings after parturition (18 cows).
Key words: colostrum milking, content of cows colostrum, tripsin inhibitor level.
