AbstractFull Text

This study was conducted to test the hypothesis that a combination of more frequently, but less accurately analysed milk components should give a more representative measure of a cow′s longer term milk composition than a DHIA sample taken once per month. Systematic biases with respect to stage of...

AbstractFull Text

Real-Time PCR has dramatically improved the usefulness of the common preserved DHIA bovine milk sample. It allows for a quicker turn around time while utilizing a high-end technological test. This helps to identify many of the common mastitis causing bacteria without the need for a sterile sample....
