  This study was carried out to determine using possibility of viscosity values for determination of dairy milk quality. Bucket raw bovine milk samples collected from smallholder dairy farms were analyzed on five test days. While somatic cell count of milk samples (DMSCC) were obtained by direct microscopy, viscosity values (VMSCC) were assessed by a viscosty meter. In spite of relatively lower values had been recorded in VMSCC, no significant difference was found according to both methods. In subgroup evaluation by DMSCC and VMSCC, 22.4 and 34.0% of the samples were lower than the legal SCC limit for human consumption, respectively. Calculated high correlation (r = 0.783, p<0.01) between VMSCC and DMSCC shown reliable using ability of viscosity values in dairy enterprises for determination of SCC or raw milk quality.

  The objective of this study was to estimate the milk yield losses related to milk Somatic Cell Count (SCC) in Holstein cows of Turkey. Data included 17 study results conducted in Turkey between 1999 and 2009. Average SCC was determined as 705.419 cells mL-1 and thus, daily Milk Yield (dMY), Lactational Milk Yield (LMY) and 305 daily milk yield losses were estimated as 14.56-17.44, 11.62 and 12.84-15.38%, respectively. Annual financial loss due to high SCC was estimated as $217.8 per milking cow. Therefore, reducing SCC in Holstein cows is seen an obligation for dairy sector of Turkey.

  The objective of this research was to determine the relationships between Somatic Cell Count (SCC) and pH in bovine raw milk. Bucket milk samples were evaluated by direct microscopic method using methylene blue stain and a digital pH meter. SCC data were transformed to log 10 base and ANOVA was used to compute two parameters with SPSS. Overall mean log SCC and pH were estimated to be 5.747±0.0017 and 6.547±0.007, respectively. No significant differences were determined according to Test Days (TD) but effect of TD on pH was significant (p<0.05). When the data were assessed by SCC subgroups, 22.67% of those were recorded within elevated (750x103 cells mL-1) SCC group. The findings show that pH records of raw milk are not suggested to determine subclinical mastitis or quality of milk.
