Abstract


In the selection process, along with the milk quantity obtained from an animal, an important part is the milk quality, which has a big influence in the recalculated milk quantity and also in its nutritive, energetic and biological value which the milk contains both as food and as feed. Hygienic milk must fulfill two quality indicators: total bacterial count (TBC) and somatic cell count (SCC) both reffering to 1 ml of milk, extracted from the farmer’s milk tank. To fulfill the sanitary and veterinary inspection and to be considered a high-quality merchandise TBC must be situated at the maximum limit of 100,000/ml and SCC must not rise above 400,000/ml. By evaluating the milk quality on the basis of determining total bacterial count and somatic cell count, there were obtained very good values of these two indicators. The total bacterial count (TBC) obtained in the 33 examined samples had values between 10x1000 cfu/ml and 930x1000 cfu/ml, and the somatic cell count has been situated between the values of 13000 cells/ml and 2184000 cells/ml.
