A Study on the Quantity and Quality of Cow Milk

  • Isaguirre Yaquelin


Milk is a nutrient-rich, white liquid food produced by the mammary glands of mammals. It is the primary source of nutrition for infant mammals including humans who are breastfed before they are able to digest other types of food. Early-lactation milk contains colostrum, which carries the mother's antibodies to its young and can reduce the risk of many diseases. It contains many other nutrients including protein and lactose. As an agricultural product, milk, also called dairy milk, is extracted from farm animals during or soon after pregnancy. A study on the quantity and quality of cow milk is conducted and described in this paper.
