Fatty Acids

contact us to learn more

What are Fatty Acids?

The type and quantity of fats can vary in milk. We can measure the amount of saturated, mono-unsaturated and poly-unsaturated fat in milk at a bulk and individual cow level.

The type and quantity of certain fatty acids will affect the quality and characteristics of finished products such as cheese, cream and butter

What Are The Benefits?

By measuring the levels of fatty acids in milk, it’s possible to decide which milks are suited to producing certain products.

What Testing is Available?

Each bulk milk sample can be tested, and the results will be reported online in Herd Companion.

To order, please email milk@nmrp.com quoting your producer ID.
