Milk is a food product completely responsible for all dietary requirements of juveniles. The components of milk (proteins, fat, minerals, vitamins, sugars) are characterized by high biological value and utility. For nutritional, as well as economic reasons, it is more and more important to increase milk production. The increasing milk production of dairy cows leads to increasing demands for optimal intake of suitable nutrients. If it is not paid attention to these demands, it can create space for the development of many metabolic disorders. These may be presented in the composition and quality of milk. The aim of this study is to present basic information and the cause of metabolic disorders in dairy cows, methods of their detection and mainly to gather the latest knowledge of the effect of metabolic disorders of dairy cows on milk quality. Specifically, we deal with acidosis, alkalosis and ketosis as the most frequent metabolic diseases of dairy cattle.
