The proper handling of milk samples prior to bacterial analysis has been somewhat of a problem to dairy processors of South Dakota. There have been, and still are, many queries by these people about the treatment of o milk sample prior to the determination of a bacterial count. Should the milk samples be frozen prior to determining the number of bacteria? If it is feasible, what effect will the freezing have on the number of bacteria found? No tangible information about this problem has been found in the literature. Standard procedure emphasize mainly the icing of milk sample before analyzing for number of bacteria. In this study a comparison has been made of the iced and frozen samples from the bacteriological viewpoint. The objective of this study is to determine the effect of frozen storage of milk samples on the number of bacteria.
