Abstract


This study approaches the influence of the season on the total germs count (TGC) andchemical composition of the milk in Brown cows from Mureşul farm, Arad County.Results showed a very close variation for the major components of the milk. Milk fat andlactose were slightly higher in cold than in warm season, while milk protein hadrelatively constant values. Total milk acidity, as freshness indicator, had values withinnormal limits (15-19T), with significant differences (p<0.05) between the two seasons.The hygienic quality of the milk, assessed through TGC, improved during the studiedperiod, differences between the season being significant (p<0.05).

Keywords


milk; total germs count; major chemical components; acidity
