Bacterial Quality of Goat Raw Milk in Khartoum State, Sudan
Asian Journal of Research in Animal and Veterinary Sciences,
This study was aiming at investigating the bacteriological quality of raw goat’s milk in Khartoum State during 6 months of the year 2019. A total of 60 samples of raw goat’s milk were collected from different localities of Khartoum State as follows: 20 samples from Khartoum Locality, 20 from Bahri Locality and 20 from Omdurman Locality. Samples were subjected for bacteriological Viable Count using Plate Count Agar (PCA) and Coliform Count (CC) methods.For goat's milk samples collected from Khartoum Locality, 11 (55.0%) scored the mean APC of 25X105CFU/ml and 9 (45.0%) scored the mean Aerobic Plate Count(APC) of 15X103CFU/ml. Coliforms were detected in 5 (25.0%) of milk samples with the mean CC of 10X103CFU/ml. Out of 20 goats' milk samples collected from Bahri Locality, 8 (40.0%) scored the mean APC of 20X105CFU/ml and 12 (55.0%) scored the mean APC of 18X103CFU/ml. Coliforms were detected in 6 (30.0%) of milk samples with the mean CC of 10X103CFU/ml. For goat's milk samples collected from Omdurman Locality, 14 (70.0%) scored the mean APC of 21X105CFU/ml and 6 (30.0%) scored the mean APC of 19X103CFU/ml. Coliforms were not detected in milk samples.
