Abstract


Experiments were undertaken to evaluate the effect on milk chemical composition of feeding to Turcana sheep fresh forages, both in spring, summer and early autumn (April to September). Milk fat, protein and dry matter was affected by the season, the higher content was observed in August and September. The measured values in the this period was: 7,08±0,08% and 7,39±0,09%, protein 5,42±0,19% and 5,61±0,016%, dry matter: 19,39±0,17% and 20,73±0,92%. Evoluating these results we conclude that is possible to utilize late summer sheep milk to maximize the content of beneficial chemical compounds of dairy products.
