Release 2

This version released with the FBP Food, Beverage and Pharmaceutical Training Package Version 2.0.

Application

This unit of competency describes the skills and knowledge required to carry out sampling and testing procedures for milk received from farm as the first operation in market milk processing or the manufacturing of milk-based products.

This unit applies to individuals who are responsible for receiving and testing milk from the dairy farm, who often work independently, using discretion and making judgements where required.

No occupational licensing or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication. However, legislative and regulatory requirements for food processing exist, so local requirements must be checked. All work must comply with Australian food safety standards and relevant codes of practice.

  • the different types of market milk and related products
  • proximate analysis profiles for milk from different commercial species of animals
  • the properties of milk fats and spoilage reactions in milk fats
  • the characteristics and importance of further processing of the two types of milk proteins
  • the impact of nutrition and genetics on protein to fat (P:F) ratios
  • the mineral composition of milk and relationship between mineral and protein, fat and lactose levels
  • the types of microorganisms present in fresh milk and their impact on milk storage and processing characteristics
  • characteristics and food safety implications of antibiotic residues and mastitic milk
  • nutrients and micronutrients levels in fresh milk as a source of human nutrition
  • pathogenic organisms in fresh milk, and processing and environmental controls
