Short summary
This study aimed to determine the effect of cow breed, season and type of diet on the fatty acid profile of raw milk. The study was conducted on bulk milk samples collected in winter and summer from 4 herds of Czech Fleckvieh and 4 herds of Holstein cows. One half of the herds was grazed while the other half was not. Effect of breed was found in odd-chain, branch-chain and hypercholesterolemic FA while season and type of diet mainly influenced the proportion of saturated and polyunsaturated FA.
