Milk somatic cell count (SCC) is the gold standard in diagnosis of subclinical mastitis, and is also an important parameter in quality programmes of dairy cooperatives. As routine SCC analysis is usually restricted to central laboratories, much effort has been invested in the search for alternative biomarkers of mastitis and milk quality, including the presence in the milk of the acute phase proteins (APP), haptoglobin (Hp) and serum amyloid A (SAA). The aim of this study was to investigate relationships between Hp, SAA and SCC in quarter, cow composite, and bulk tank milk samples. Cows (n=165), without any clinical signs of disease or abnormalities in the milk or udder, from three different dairy farms, were used. Cow composite milk samples from all cows delivering milk at the sampling occasion were taken once in each herd. In one of the farms, representative quarter milk samples (n=103) from 26 cows were also collected. In addition, bulk tank milk samples from 96 dairy farms were included in ...
BACKGROUND: Supplementation of formula with bovine milk fat globule membranes has been shown to narrow the gap in immunological and cognitive development between breast-fed and formula-fed infants.. METHOD: In a double-blinded randomized controlled trial 160 formula-fed infants received an experimental formula (EF), supplemented with bovine milk fat globule membranes, or standard formula until 6 months of age. A breast-fed reference group was recruited. Lipidomic analyses were performed on plasma and erythrocyte membranes at 6 months and on serum at 4 and 12 months of age.. RESULTS: At 6 months of age, we observed a significant separation in the plasma lipidome between the two formula groups, mostly due to differences in concentrations of sphingomyelins (SM), phosphatidylcholines (PC), and ceramides, and in the erythrocyte membrane lipidome, mostly due to SMs, PEs and PCs. Already at 4 months, a separation in the serum lipidome was evident where SMs and PCs contributed. The separation was not ...
Milk is a liquid that is typically stored in your refrigerator and used for a wide variety of cooking and baking purposes, as well as as a beverage in its own right. There are several different types of milk out there with varied fat contents (skim, 2%, whole), varied water contents (evaporated milk) and added sugar (sweetened condensed milk), but one that you might be less familiar with is dry milk powder. Dry milk powder is made by dehydrating milk to remove all of the water and leave only the milk solids. Powdered milk has an extremely long shelf life and does not require refrigeration. Many different dairy products can be powdered, including buttermilk, but nonfat dry milk tends to be the most common choice. The low fat content of skim milk gives it an even longer shelf life than other dry milks, making it an appealing choice for grocers to carry and for you to tuck away at the back of your pantry.. Dry milk powder can be reconstituted with water. The packaging will have instructions that ...
Nine multiparous lactating cows averaging 171 days in milk were divided according to days in milk and milk production into three 3×3 Latin squares with three 3-week periods to investigate the effect of rumen degradable protein on milk urea nitrogen. Diets were formulated to provide 3 concentrations of dietary rumen degradable protein (9.8, 10.8, and 11.8% of dry matter), while rumen undegradable protein (4.6% of DM) remained constant. Each period was 3 weeks in length, with 2 weeks used for adjustment and one week used for sampling. Rumen degradable protein levels had a low effect on milk yield (P|0.05), but a significant effect on protein percentage and milk urea nitrogen content. There was linear increase in the milk urea nitrogen content of cows fed diets one to three (P|0.01). Milk urea nitrogen is a simple and noninvasive measurement that can be used to monitor nitrogen efficiency in dairy cows. These results indicated that milk urea nitrogen might be used as a parameter to monitor the change in

All dairy processors depend on a continuous supply of high-quality bulk milk from milk producers to be able to distribute liquid milk and dairy products. Mastitis, inflammation of the bovine udder, is the most common disease in dairy cows, and leads to altered milk composition and impaired milk quality. The somatic cell count (SCC) is currently used as a marker for udder health, and indirectly, for bulk milk quality, but because it is somewhat insensitive and unspecific, there has been an interest to find alternative markers. The main objective of this thesis was to acquire more knowledge about two potential markers for bulk milk quality: polymorphonuclear leukocyte count (PMNC) and α-lactalbumin (α-LA). Another objective was to study if the combination of α-LA, haptoglobin (Hp) and serum amyloid A (SAA) in an acute phase index (API) could be useful as an alternative marker for bulk milk quality. Bulk milk samples were collected from Swedish dairy farms and analyzed for PMNC, α-LA, SCC, ...
BACKGROUND: Some of the health advantages of breast-fed as compared to formula-fed infants have been suggested to be due to metabolic programming effects resulting from early nutrition. METHODS: In a prospective double-blinded randomized trial, 160 infants ,2 mo of age were randomized to experimental formula (EF) with added milk fat globule membrane (MFGM) or standard formula (SF) until 6 mo of age. A breast-fed reference (BFR) group consisted of 80 infants. Measurements were made at inclusion and at 4, 6, and 12 mo of age. RESULTS: During the intervention, the EF group had higher total serum cholesterol concentration than the SF group, reaching the level of the BFR group. The EF group had a low-density lipoprotein to high-density lipoprotein ratio not significantly different from the SF group but lower than the BFR group. CONCLUSION: Supplementation of infant formula with MFGM modified the fat composition of the formula and narrowed the gap between breast-fed and formula-fed infants with regard ...

Mycobacterium spp. is one of the most important species of zoonotic pathogens that can be transmitted from cattle to humans. The presence of these opportunistic, pathogenic bacteria in bovine milk has emerged as a public-health concern, especially among individuals who consume raw milk and related dairy products. To address this concern, the Brazilian control and eradication program focusing on bovine tuberculosis, was established in 2001. However, bovine tuberculosis continues to afflict approximately 1,3 percent of the cattle in Brazil. In the present study, 300 samples of milk from bovine herds, obtained from both individual and collective bulk tanks and informal points of sale, were cultured on Löwenstein-Jensen and Stonebrink media. Polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-based tests and restriction-enzyme pattern analysis were then performed on the colonies exhibiting phenotypes suggestive of Mycobacterium spp., which were characterized as acid-fast bacilli. Of the 300 bovine milk samples that were
Research has shown that dairy diets may contain up to 30% corn dried distillers grains with solubles (DDGS, interestingly, field experiences commonly report that milk fat depression (MFD), a disorder characterized by a sharp reduction in milk fat concentration and yield without affecting other productive traits, when feeding DDGS. The research described herein focused on the effects of feeding DDGS on MFD in dairy cows. Experiment 1 evaluated the effects of feeding high levels of corn oil and starch in diets containing 20% DDGS. The inclusion of corn oil or starch did not affect milk production but resulted in MFD; the combination of these two factors had additive negative effects that exacerbated the MFD response. Ruminal pH was similar across treatments. The results showed a shift in the ratio of acetate to propionate and suggest altered metabolism of unsaturated fatty acids that resulted in diet-induced MFD. Experiment 2 evaluated the effects of feeding reduced-fat DDGS (RFDDGS) as an alternative to
TY - JOUR. T1 - Robotic milking and milk quality: effects on bacterial counts, somatic cell counts, freezing point and free fatty acids. AU - de Koning, C.J.A.M.. AU - Slaghuis, B.A.. AU - van der Vorst, Y.. PY - 2003. Y1 - 2003. N2 - Changes in milk quality after the introduction of automatic milking systems (AM-systems) on dairy farms in The Netherlands, Germany and Denmark were examined and the data were compared with milk quality results of farms with conventional milking technology. After introduction, a small, but significant increase in total bacterial count, somatic cell count, freezing point and free fatty acids was observed. The highest levels for total plate count and cell count are found in the first six months after introduction. After this period the milk quality slightly improves to a more stable level. Risk factors related with milk quality concern general farm characteristics, animal health, AM-system, cleaning and cooling, housing, management skills of the farmer and the ...

In this study, we provide a strong evidence for the significant associations of UGDH, with 2 milk production traits in a Chinese Holstein cattle population. Moreover, we demonstrated that the SNPs Ex1-1 and Ex11-1 in exonic regions of UGDH are two functional polymorphisms in which A allele of SNP Ex1-1 and T allele of SNP Ex11-1 cause lower expression level of UGDH compared with the G and C allele respectively. Together, our findings not only confirmed our early finding that a QTL located in the 1.5-Mb region between BMS483 and MNB-209 for milk yield and protein yield[14], but also strongly suggest that the SNPs Ex1-1 and Ex11-1 in UGDH might be QTN responsible for this QTL.. Previously, we mapped a QTL near BMS470 with effects on milk production traits with daughter design using 14 microsatellites on bovine chromosome 6 in a Chinese Holstein population involving 26 paternal half-sib families with 2356 daughters[8, 9]. By increasing the marker density with 17 microsatellite markers spanning from ...

Environmental factors, particularly commensal bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract, may be involved in the pathogenesis of rheumatoid arthritis (RA). The aim of this study was to evaluate whether natural milk antibodies against a wide spectrum of pathogenic enteromicobes and their toxins modify the disease activity in RA. Twenty patients with RA, whose disease activity was uncontrolled by authentic medications due to drug resistance, complications and/or risk factors were treated for 3 months with an oral administration of a whey protein concentrate (WPC) containing high levels of natural milk antibodies. Eighteen background-matched RA patients, not supplemented with milk antibody adjunct, were used as controls. Statistically significant reduction of arthritis symptoms and improvement of intestinal disorders were observed only in the test group: effective in 8 (44%), possibly effective in 2 (12%) and not effective in 8 (44%) of 18 patients treated (2 patients withdrew) based on an ad hoc evaluation
Test-day data from all herds enrolled in Dairy Herd Improvement (DHI) somatic cell testing during 2013 (98% of all DHI herds) were examined to assess the status of national milk quality. All test-day data within a herd were included regardless of breed; data from owner-sampler herds were included as well. Data from cows with records that failed Council on Dairy Cattle Breeding editing requirements were excluded. Somatic cell score (SCS) of milk is reported to the Council on Dairy Cattle Breeding as part of an individual cows test-day yield information. The SCS was converted back to a milk somatic cell count (SCC) in cells per milliliter [SCC = 2(SCS − 3) × 100,000] for calculating herd and state averages.. Table 1 shows total number of herd test days, average number of cows with usable records per herd on test day, average test-day milk yield and herd SCC, and percentages of herd test days that exceeded four levels of SCC (750,000, 600,000, 500,000, and 400,000 cells/mL) for each state (also ...

The four casein proteins make up the majority of protein in goats milk. They are encoded by 4 closely linked genes, CSN1S1, CSN2, CSN1S2 and CSN3 within a 250 kb segment on chromosome 6. Polymorphisms of these genes are of interest to animal breeders due to their effect on milk composition and quality. Due to the linkage between them, methods for analysis of this genomic region have mostly been at the haplotype level. A multi-SNP approach was used in this study. We assessed the suitability of two multivariate statistical methods, partial least squares and principal component regression, for the detection of the additive effects of casein polymorphisms on milk traits. These methods are well suited for analysis of collinear variables. Genotype information on 38 casein SNPs, and phenotypic records on milk yield, somatic cell count, fat, protein, and lactose percentages were obtained for 565 goats from 6 Norwegian farms. Three models were compared. After correcting the records for fixed and ...
This study describes the temporal, spatial and basic animal-level associations with MFD in Irish dairy herds. It has been reported that there is considerable variability in milk fat production including seasonal differences, herd to herd differences and within herd differences [11]. The analyses performed in this study show that overall, the prevalence of MFD has decreased from 2004 to 2014 (Figs. 1 and 2), although there are year to year variations in the prevalence of MFD over time. One potential explanation for this decrease in prevalence over time is that the focus of farmers on milk solid production has greatly increased with milk payment schemes based on milk components now widely adopted by many milk processors in Ireland. The introduction of the EBI system in 2001 is potentially responsible for at least some of this improvement through genetic selection for milk solids [1, 22]. External factors such as changes in grass growth patterns, grass quality or weather patterns may potentially ...

Milk fat is encapsulated in a milk fat globule membrane (MFGM) that contains bioactive glycoproteins and glycolipids. The MFGM inhibits infectivity of rotavirus (RV), activity that has been attributed to its glycoprotein and carbohydrate components. However, previous studies of proteins and oligosaccharides in the MGFM have not accounted for all the bioactivity associated with the complete MFGM. The lipid fraction of the MFGM accounts for half of its composition by weight, and we postulate that this fraction should be tested by itself to determine if it plays a role in antiviral activity. Herein, the anti-RV activity of an organic extract of MFGM was tested. Natural and whey buttermilk powders containing bovine MFGM enriched in polar lipids were prepared by microfiltration and supercritical fluid extraction treatment to reduce the triglyceride content of the powders. Lipid fractions were then extracted from the MFGM using both single- and dual-phase extraction methods. Whole MFGM and organic extracts
Holstein dairy cows (four J5 vaccinates and four controls) selected for no recorded intramammary disease and low somatic cell count (SCC) during the previous lactation were challenged by intramammary infusion of Escherichia coli. Vaccination with J5 was at 8 weeks and again 4 weeks before the anticipated calving date. Cows were challenged at 8 to 16 days in milk (DIM). Shedding of E. coli in milk was significantly higher among controls than vaccinates (no shedding) from 6 h to 21 h postchallenge. From 21 h to 132 h postchallenge, SCC in challenged quarters of controls (5,429,000/ml) was significantly higher than that of vaccinates (490,000/ml). On the day after challenge, milk production in control cows was 8 kg less, while vaccinates gained 0.5 kg, a significant difference. In serum immediately prior to challenge, J5-specific immunoglobulin G1 (IgG1) was significantly higher, IgG2 was nearly significantly higher, and IgM was the same in J5 vaccinates relative to controls. Vaccinates had ...
First, twenty percent of Americans get sick immediately upon drinking regular milk and this has been growing every year. An informal survey by The Weston A. Price Foundation found that ninety percent of those lacto-intolerant can drink raw milk. What is it doing to the health of the other 80 percent? This study names just asthma and allergies. But there are a host of other auto-immune disorders caused or made worse by drinking regular milk. These symptoms are either corrected or lessened when regular milk is stopped or when substituting regular milk with raw milk. . It is only logical to assume many people do not know the symptoms they suffer are regular-milk-induced. Face it, regular milk today is not what grandma drank. Our article Skim Milk may be making you fat and sick is already the No. 1 post of the year. It tells how skim milk can help make you fat and raise bad ...
This NebGuide explains how to properly test for MUN and interpret the results. Milk urea nitrogen (MUN) analyses can be used as a signal, or red flag, to point out potential problems in your feeding program. In particular, high MUN values reflect excessive dietary crude protein or low rumen degradable nonfiber carbohydrates (NFC). The NFC fraction, usually composed of starch and other sugars, can be low when insufficient grain is fed, or grain is improperly processed. Appropriate MUN testing over a period of several months to fine tune a feeding management program can result in: 1. precisely meeting nutritional requirements, 2. lower feed costs, 3. increased reproductive performance, 4. increased milk protein yield, and 5. minimal nitrogen excretion into the environment.
Shortening is responsible for providing tenderness and aerating the dough. In terms of its molecular structure, a typical shortening that appears solid [at room temperature] contains 15-20% solids and, hence, 80-85% liquid oil ... this small amount of solids can be made to hold all of the liquid in a matrix of very small, stable, needlelike crystals (beta-prime crystals).[33] This crystalline structure is considered highly stable due to how tightly its molecules are packed. The sugar used in baking is essentially sucrose, and besides imparting sweetness in the doughnut, sugar also functions in the color and tenderness of the final product. Sucrose is a simple carbohydrate whose structure is made up of a glucose molecule bound to a fructose molecule.[36] Milk is utilized in the making of doughnuts, but in large scale bakeries, one form of milk used is nonfat dry milk solids. These solids are obtained by removing most of the water from skim milk with heat, and this heat additionally denatures ...
Background: Butter is rich in saturated fat [saturated fatty acids (SFAs)] and can increase plasma low density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, which is a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease. However, compared with other dairy foods, butter is low in milk fat globule membrane (MFGM) content, which encloses the fat. We hypothesized that different dairy foods may have distinct effects on plasma lipids because of a varying content of MFGM. Objective: We aimed to investigate whether the effects of milk fat on plasma lipids and cardiometabolic risk markers are modulated by the MFGM content. Design: The study was an 8-wk, single-blind, randomized, controlled isocaloric trial with 2 parallel groups including overweight men and women (n = 57 randomly assigned). For the intervention, subjects consumed 40 g milk fat/d as either whipping cream (MFGM diet) or butter oil (control diet). Intervention foods were matched for total fat, protein, carbohydrates, and calcium. Subjects were discouraged from ...

The Harland-Ashworth test for measuring undenatured whey protein nitrogen in nonfat dry milk was modified to measure undenatured whey protein nitrogen in dried whey. The new test was designed to measure absorbance in Harland-Ashworth filtrates at 280 nm to eliminate difficulties associated with turbidimetric measurements. One gram dried whey was reconstituted in 25 ml pH 6.7 phosphate buffer (.lM) in a 25 x 150 mm test tube. Ten grams sodium chloride were added. The test tubes were incubated for 30 min in a water bath at 37C and shaken 8-10 times in the first 15 min. The tubes were removed from the water bath and cooled to room temperature. The contents of the tubes were filtered through S & S 602 filter paper. One milliliter of filtrate was diluted with 10 ml H2o and the total absorbance was measured against a blank of 1 ml phosphate buffer saturated with sodium chloride, then diluted with 10 ml H2o. One milliliter of filtrate was mixed with 10 ml 13.2% trichloroacetic acid and filtered through Whatman

Background: Milk is the most important food for growth and development of the neonate, because of its nutrient composition and presence of many bioactive proteins. Differences between human and bovine milk in low abundant proteins have not been extensively studied. To better understand the differences between human and bovine milk, the qualitative and quantitative differences in the milk proteome as well as their changes over lactation were compared using both label-free and labelled proteomics techniques. These datasets were analysed and compared, to better understand the role of milk proteins in development of the newborn. Methods: Human and bovine milk samples were prepared by using filter-aided sample preparation (FASP) combined with dimethyl labelling and analysed by nano LC LTQ-Orbitrap XL mass spectrometry. Results: The human and bovine milk proteome show similarities with regard to the distribution over biological functions, especially the dominant presence of enzymes, transport and ...
Test day measurements on first lactations of Holstein cows were used to estimate genetic parameters for test day production traits. Traits were milk, fat or protein yields at test day, in 10 intervals based on days in milk. The data set was divided into five subsets and the traits were analyzed with a series of two-trait animal models to obtain REML covariance estimates. Fixed effects were classes for days in milk within test day interval and age at calving, and herd-test date. Pooled heritabilities for test day traits were small varying from .14 for milk to .12 for fat and protein test day yields . Each test-day yield was highly genetically correlated with the adjacent test day yield throughout the lactation. Among test day milk and protein yields, all correlations were consistently positive and high. Genetic correlations of mid lactation test day milk yields and all test day fat yields were small, and near zero. Genetic correlations of all test day protein yields with initial fat yields were ...
The objective of the research described in this thesis was to provide new information on the ruminal biohydrogenation of long-chain n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA), such as 20:5n-3, 22:5n-3 and 22:6n-3, for altering bovine milk fatty acid (FA) composition, with the potential to improve human health. Emphasis was not only placed on the potential to increase milk fat n-3, but also to modulate ruminal lipid metabolism and to explore the mechanisms driving milk fat synthesis and its regulation in lactating cows in order to understand the mechanisms and metabolic pathways underlying the diet-induced changes in milk fat depression (MFD), milk FA composition and specific FA intermediates and end products associated with MFD. Experiments documented in I-IV encompassed detailed investigations of ruminal (I-III) and mammary (IV) lipid metabolism. Experiment reported in I was conducted to build up methods for the analysis of long-chain 20- to 22-carbon FA intermediates formed during ruminal ...

Bovine milk is a valuable and widely consumed source of high-value protein and fat. The cytological mechanism of milk synthesis and secretion in cattle is well-described[1], however, the molecular mechanisms responsible for variations in the components of milk require further investigation given the importance of these processes for human nutrition. In dairy cattle, the heritability of milk protein yield has been estimated to be approximately 23%[2]. If the polymorphisms contributing to milk traits were identified, this information could be used in breeding programs to increase milk protein yields. Furthermore, identification of the gene pathways involved will contribute to the understanding of the mechanisms that regulate lactation and to the development of new approaches to improve milk production and the value of milk proteins for human nutrition.. Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have become a popular methodology to identify genomic regions containing variants affecting complex traits. ...

Mucin-producing human NCI-H292 airway epithelial cells were seeded in wells of a 6-well plate and treated with glucose for the indicated times and concentrations. The cells were then washed with cold PBS, exposed to trypsin, and formed into pellets at 700×g for 10 minutes at 4°C. The pellets were resuspended in lysis buffer (50 mM Tris-HCl, pH 8.0, 5 mM EDTA, 150 mM NaCl, 1% Triton X-100, 1 mM phenylmethylsulfonyl fluoride, and protease inhibitor cocktail). The preparation was clarified by centrifugation, and the supernatant was saved as a whole-cell lysate. The proteins (50 μg) were separated using 10% reducing sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis and electroblotted in 20% methanol, 25 mM Tris, and 192 mM glycine onto a nitrocellulose membrane, which was then blocked with 5% nonfat dry milk in 25 mM Tris-HCl, 150 mM NaCl, and 0.2% Tween 20, and then incubated with the indicated primary antibody of EGFR (Cell Signaling Technologies, Boston, MA, USA), ERK1/2 (Cell ...

A: CST does not routinely test antibodies for fluoresecent western blotting, though many work well in this application. Performing a fluorescent western blot using CST™ antibodies requires a modified immunoblotting protocol. We find that omitting Tween® 20 detergent from the blocking step (using only 5% nonfat dry milk in TBS) and drying the membrane prior to imaging are the only necessary changes from our standard protocol. Full details can be found in our Fluorescent Western Immunoblotting Protocol (Primary Ab Incubation In BSA) and our Fluorescent Western Immunoblotting Protocol (Primary Ab Incubation In Milk). Additionally, our Prestained Protein Marker, Broad Range (Premixed Format) #7720 serves well as a marker in fluorescent western blotting because it is autofluorescent at near-infrared wavelengths.. ...

We have previously identified 11 promising candidate genes for milk composition traits by resequencing the whole genomes of 8 Holstein bulls with extremely high and low estimated breeding values for milk protein and fat percentages (high and low groups), including FCGR2B, CENPE, RETSAT, ACSBG2, NFKB2, TBC1D1, NLK, MAP3K1, SLC30A2, ANGPT1 and UGDH those contained 25 indels between high and low groups. In this study, the purpose was to further examine whether these candidates have significant genetic effects on milk protein and fat traits. With PCR product sequencing, 13 indels identified by whole genome resequencing were successfully genotyped. With association analysis in 769 Chinese Holstein cows, we found that the indel in FCGR2B was significantly associated with milk yield, protein yield and protein percentage (P = 0.0041 to 0.0297); five indels in CENPE and one indel in MAP3K1 were markedly relevant to milk yield, fat yield and protein yield (P | 0.0001 to 0.0073); polymorphism in RETSAT was
As soon as the cow releases the milk, the Lely MQC (Milk Quality Control) system is activated. The MQC system provides an overview of a range of useful indicators of milk quality. These include somatic cell count, colour and conductivity. An indication is also given of fat, protein and lactose content. This also allows you to check overall cow health and feed matters. This monitoring happens automatically at every milking. The data are immediately converted into useable information. In the event of a deviation in the milks values, there is an option of separating the milk automatically. The monitoring system is fitted into the robot arm, right next to the udder. By being placed so close to the source, the MQC monitors the quality of the milk accurately every quarter of an hour.. ...
