Abstract
Recent routine analyses of milk samples have revealed that often the S.N.F. were below that required by Kenya law, viz. 8.5 per cent. As these samples were of unadulterated milk it was decided to carry out complete analyses to elucidate what constituent of Kenya milk was the cause of low S.N.F. Sixty-five samples were investigated from eighteen herds repre- senting six different breeds. The figures given for protein were obtained by multiplying the Amount of nitrogen found by 6.38. The lactose was estimated by subtracting the -amount of Protein and ash from the S.N.F. With the ex- ception of samples A and K, which were fresh, the milk was preserved by the addition of 1 per cent by volume of a solution containing 10 per cent pot. bichromate.
