Abstract

This study was conducted to determine the milk yield and quality of Kivircik sheep under breeders' conditions. A total of 38 heads of Kivircik sheep in 3th or 4th lactation were used in the study. According to the results the mean daily milk yield was 495.5 g/day which was considered as a very wide variation in terms of milk control periods. Similar satiation was seen in somatic cell count which was ranged between 25.231 - 8.000.000 units/ml. Fat, solids not fat, protein, lactose, density, conductivity and pH values of milk samples taken during the control periods were found as 7.7%, 11.2%, 5.8%, 4.51%, 1.033 gcm(3-1), 3.9 mS cm(-1) and 6.90, respectively.
