  1. 1. Non-coagulating milk from Swedish Red Dairy Cattle : Influence of milk composition, physical properties and genetic parameters

    Author : Kajsa Nilsson; Institutionen för livsmedelsteknik; []
    Keywords : LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; Non-coagulating milk; genetic parameter; milk composistion; heritability; protein profile; hydrolysation;

    Abstract : Non-coagulating (NC) milk is unwanted in cheese production, as it lowers cheese yield and prolongs processing time. Less yield will lead to economic losses at the dairies. Even if NC milk has been found in several breeds, studies suggest that Swedish Red Dairy cattle (RDC) has a higher frequency of NC milk than most other breeds. READ MORE

  2. 2. Genetics of colostrum, milk and serum antibodies in dairy cattle: implications for health and production

    Author : Juan Cordero; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; NATURAL SCIENCES; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Colostrum with sufficient IgG content is essential for the newborn calf, as it requires this passive immunity to survive during its rearing. Failure of passive transfer (FPT) occurs when a calf does not absorb enough antibodies (... READ MORE

  3. 3. Crossbreeding as a strategy in dairy cattle herds

    Author : Julie Clasen; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; []
    Keywords : LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : This thesis aimed to explore benefits of dairy crossbreeding at herd level and form recommendations for dairy farmers, advisors, and breeding companies. A survey study revealed that Swedish dairy farmers can be divided into two groups: those supporting crossbreeding and those not supporting it. READ MORE

  4. 4. Exploring Coagulation Properties in Bovine Milk Using Milk Genomics Approaches

    Author : Frida Gustavsson; Livsmedelsteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Bovine milk; rennet-induced gelation; milk genomics; Swedish Red dairy cattle; milk composition; technological properties; cheese; genetic polymorphism; quantitative trait locus; protein profile; casein micelle; calcium content;

    Abstract : Swedish Red (SR) dairy cattle is the second most common breed in Sweden and hence SR milk quality is crucial for the nutritional value and the processability of the milk delivered to the Swedish dairies. This thesis will give an insight into the quality of milk from SR cows and it will illuminate the possibilities for improvements of both breeding programs and the quality of different dairy products, focusing on cheese characteristics.

  5. 5. Bovine udder quarter milk in relation to somatic cell count : focus on milk composition and processing properties

    Author : Linda Forsbäck; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; []
    Keywords : LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : The dairy industry requires raw milk of high quality in order to produce milk products of high quality and quantity. Mastitis is one of the most prevalent and economically important production diseases in dairy cattle. It causes increased somatic cell count (SCC), deteriorated milk composition and consequently altered processing properties of milk. READ MORE
