Can somatic cell counts get too low?


Dairy, Food and Environmental Sanitation 10(8): 494-497
Can somatic cell counts get too low?
Research carried out to compare the susceptibility of cows with low and high somatic cell counts (SCC) to mastitis infection is reviewed. Data from 1st lactation on milk production and SCC were obtained from 3432 cows. Cows were grouped into 3 SCC classes based on initial 1st lactation test: <100 000, 100 000-400 000 and >400 000 cells/ml. Results for SCC and production data for subsequent lactations were determined.
