Study Questions


Study Questions

1. At right is a group of cows. If you were to collect milk samples from these cows and analyze them for the major milk components, then what factors might influence the results of those milk composition analyses?

What might you expect the milk composition to be between cows #1 and #2?

 

What about cows #1 vs. #3?

 

 


2. You have some friends who raise a special breed of show rabbits. They just had a litter, but the mother died. They have no other lactating rabbits to foster this valuable litter onto at this time. They have asked you for suggestions on how to develop a milk replacer based on milk of another species. What would you recommend?
