ABSTRACT
Sanitary quality of milk and physical–chemical parameters became very important elements in evaluation and classification of milk in EU. Because of the market conditions and milk products position a new Book of Regulations of fresh raw milk quality came into force on January 1st2001 in The Republic of Croatia. The object of the investigation was comparison of some milk parameters with new rules of fresh raw milk quality and fortification of the connection between these parameters. The samples of milk of Simmental cows, with exception of mean value of the total somatic cells number (474,480/ml), were characterised by milk quality meeting the requirements of the Book of Regulations. However, Holstein–Friesian cows, in spite of large number of somatic cells in milk (676,030/ml) didn`t have even satisfactory percent of fatless dry matter (8.34; 8.36; 8.18 and 8.21%). In future, it is necessary to make programmes of cattle breeding development based on market demands and modern market objects, using European achievements in livestock science and profession.
