Author(s):

Abera Teshome Aleli

Abstract:

This article had reviewed several research papers and collected information and tracked up. The review revealed that most of the dairy men have the perception that bad quality milk affects the health wellbeing of human (consumers). But the main problem concerned with the hygienic practice is that there is no standard (clear cut point) to be followed by the smallholder dairy producers. The producers do right what they perceive correct enough to keep the quality like washing their hand before milking without detergents and sanitizers. This review found also that the smallholder in most parts of the country do no sterilize the milk utensils even they do not wash. But in some cases they use their indigenous knowledge like fumigation and smoking.
