Abstract

 This study investigates protein, amount of fat, lactose, dry matter, point of freezing and number of somatic cells (SHS) as well as the relationship among these mentioned components of milk collected from milk collection tanks from three different collection centers in Biga Town in Canakkale Province by using 832 raw cow milk sample.  Mastitis is a high cost sickness in dairy cattle production industry and number of somatic cells (SHS) in the milk is an indicator of the problem. SHS also cause loss in the productivity of raw milk  and increase the production costs of raw milk at the same time. Increased number of somatic cells also affect content of lactose, protein and dry matter in the milk to a great extent. This study aims to identify the relationship among SHS identified in raw cow milk and dry matter, non-fat dry matter, fat, protein and lactose contents.
