Abstract:
To see the relation between somatic cell count (SCC) and intensity of Chemical reaction on White Side Test (WST), Bromothymol Blue Test (BTBT) and Chloride Test (CLT), a total of 785 milk samples were chemically tested using all three tests. Out of 785 samples 109, 155 and 124 showed positive reactions on WST, BTBT and CLT respectively. The positive samples were graded as +(4), + + (8), + + + (12) and + + + + (16) according to the severity of reaction and their relative somatic cells were counted. The results revealed direct relation between SCC and intensity of chemical reaction. Ninety one percent of samples with positive reactions on all three tests had SCC over 200x103 which indicates that a SCC below 200x103 may be regarded as normal in buffalo.
