Abstract

DURING the past two decades, a good deal of work has been done on butter, particularly in relation to its vitamin A content. It has been reported that the vitamin A content of butter varies considerably. The three most important factors which influence the vitamin A content of butter are the feed, the lactation period and the breed of the animal. The first of these factors has been extensively studied by a number of workers (5, 12). Comparatively less amount of systematic work has been done on the influence of lactation period and the breed of the cow on vitamin A content of the butter-fat (2, 6). Indian workers (3, 9, 10) reported lower values for vitamin A content of butter as compared with those obtained in Western countries (11). Since this work was done in South India, it may be that the poor state of nutrition of the mulch cattle in these regions could be responsible for the low values. In the West Punjab, the cattle are comparatively better fed. It was therefore thought desirable to have the corresponding figures from the butter-fat of the Punjab cows.
