Abstract

Change in milk and blood components of lactating Saanen goats when consuming magnetic water were studied. Twelve goats in a completely randomized design with 3 treatments including 1.) Control, 2.) Consuming conditioned water with 1200 Gauss permanent magnet and 3.) Consuming conditioned water with 3600 Gauss permanent magnet, were used. Results indicated that conditioning of the water did not affect blood metabolites (glucose and urea), blood ions (Na, K, Mg and P) and milk composition (fat, protein, lactose, solid not fat and total solid) significantly.

 

Key words: Saanen goats, magnetic water, blood metabolites, blood ions, milk composition.
