Abstract

Changes in the concentrations of mineral and organic substances in moose milk during lactation were examined in relation to lactation stage and nutritional (dry matter) intake by domesticated taiga moose. Initial increases in nutrient and fat concentrations were documented in the milk during the lactation peak in June (lactation days 1–25), concurrent with the availability of high quality forage. Subsequent measures of mineral element concentrations in moose milk gradually decreased (lactation days 26–100).
