  • Ludert Vásquez


Psychrotrophic bacteria present in raw cow’s milk include the Gram-negative genera Pseudomonas, Alcaligenes, Achromobacter, Aeromonas, Serratia, Chromobacterium, and Flavobacterium, and the Gram-positive genera Bacillus, Clostridium, Cory-nebacterium, Streptococcus, Lactobacillus, and Micro-bacterium.
