Raw cow's milk is slightly acidic, normally ranging in pH from 6,4 to 6,8. Mixed herd milk that is delivered for processing is usually pH 6,6. A pH value higher than 6,8 may indicate mastitis infections, whereas values below 6,4 indicate the presence of colostrum or bacterial deterioration. Microbial souring can be related to as slight a pH change as 0,02 to 0,05.
