This research was conducted in order to learn the effects of body and udder measurements on milk lactose levels. As a result of analysis of correlation is seen a negative effect of the udder circumference on the lactose content of the milk (r=-0.386; p=0.039).Withers height, which is one of the body measurements, was also positively affected on milk lactose (r=0.426; p=0.021). According to the result of the research, high udder circumference and low withers height is seen as an advantage in order to obtain low lactose-containing milk against lactose into lerance.
