An attempt to optimize somatic cell counts transformation in milk



An attempt to optimize somatic cell counts transformation in milk



Roczniki Naukowe Zootechniki 23(4): 75-83



The influence of somatic cell count transformation methods (power transformation, square root transformation and log transformation) on the homogeneity of variance and distribution of variance errors was analysed. Genotype and age of cows were used as sources of heterogeneity. Bartlet's test for homogeneity of subclass variance was used. The normality of variance errors distribution using the chi square test was studied. It is concluded that log transformation was the most efficient.
