- ... A study of two adjacent dairy farms, one using conventional confined herd management and the other organic management, revealed significant differences in the fatty acid composition of the milk. Compared with conventional milk, organic milk had higher levels of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) and α‐linolenic acid (the major omega‐3 fatty acid in milk), and less stearic and linoleic acid (the major ...

Levels of short‐ and medium‐chain fatty acids partially responsible for aroma and flavour were initially lower in the milk from the transitioning herd, but not after the cows had settled into an organic diet. Once that point was reached ...
