Milk production represents a relevant quota of the energy consumption of the dairy ewe. Studies on relationships among level of production, milk composition and metabolic aspects are the first fundamental step in the development of a feeding system aimed at satisfying nutritive requirements of the animals. This paper reviews the knowledge about the milk composition of main Italian dairy sheep breeds, the relationship among secretion kinetics of milk and protein and productive level of animals, the algorithms used for estimating fat (6.5%) and protein (5.8%) corrected milk yield, the evolution over time of milk production during lactation and the relationships between feeding and milk composition.
