A survey of the natural iodide levels of farm milk on the Atherton tableland

Authors: W.D. Jarrett and R.J. Marschke


The naturally occurring iodide content of composite milks from individual cows was determined in seven herds on the Atherton Tableland in North Queensland. The selected farms did not use iodophors or iodine-containing feed supplements, and were geographically representative of the dairying region. Iodide was determined by a selective-ion electrode procedure. The mean iodide content of milk from 291 cows was 145 μ g/L. Statistical differences in iodide levels between localities and breeds were of no practical importance. The naturally occurring iodide level for the region was well below the legal limit for milk iodine in Queensland.
