The Influence of Extensive System on Goat Milk
Keywords:extensive systeme, goat milk, Somatic Cell Count (SCC)
The extensive system influences the hygienic quality of milk and it is mainly represented by the absence of mastitis. The basic parameter to detect this illness is the somatic cell count SCC, which are defensive cells located in the goat’s udder. In order to assess the goat milk, this study was made upon the somatic cells from the selected goats and their relation with the milk production and the extensive system farms from which the samples were taken. The results were in conformity with the European standards. Regarding the factors of influence, the amount of milk production in combination with the system type of farm must be taken into consideration.
