Senegal dairy genetics: Milk composition of dairy cattle breeds in Senegal

  1. 1. www.mtt.fi/foodafrica Senegal Dairy Genetics: Milk Composition of Dairy Cattle Breeds in Senegal The objective of the Senegal Dairy Genetics project in this study is to determine the milk composition of the various dairy cattle breeds found within the project sites. Analyses were carried out using a field milk analyser (LactiCheck Analyser®) Group 1(n=132) Group 2(n=38) Group 3(n=56) Group 4(n=15) Fat(% ) ± SE 4,88 ± 0,13 5,14 ± 0,23 5,11 ± 0,22 5,75 ± 0,47 Protein (% )± SE 3,68 ± 0,02 3,68 ± 0,03 3,52 ± 0,03 3,74 ± 006 16 June 2014, Helsinki, Finland. FoodAfrica midterm seminar This poster is part of the FoodAfrica Programme, financed as a research collaboration between the MFA of Finland, MTT Agrifood Research Finland, IFPRI, ILRI, ICRAF, Bioversity International, University of Helsinki and HAMK University of Applied Sciences. P.J. Ngono Ema, K. Marshall, S.F. Tebug,L.Lassila, E.J. Poole, I. Baltenweck , M. Tapio, J.Juga, A.Missohou. The different breeds of dairy cattle in Senegal differed in regards to their protein milk composition This result has practical implications for soured milk or yoghourt manufacturing Group2: 75% local zebu x 25% exotic zebu Group1: Pure local zebu breeds Group4: Pure exotic taurine breeds Group3: 50 % local zebu X 50% exotic taurine breeds 4 major groups identified out of 241 individual animals: Solids-not-fat and lactose were constants Table I: Fat and Protein milk contents derived from 4 dairy cattle breeds groups in Senegal.
