Abstract

SOME PHYSIOLOGICAL FACTORS INFLUENCE SOMATIC CELL COUNTS AND MILK CONTENTS ASSOCIATED WITH MASTITIS IN IRAQI BUFFALOES

Basima Qasim Hassan AL-Saadi * and Maay Abd alqahar ALShakh**

ABSTRACT

The aim of this study was design to investigate the prevalence of mastitis in lactating buffaloes and the association with somatic cell count (SCC)and the variation of these cell in relation to parity , stage of lactation and milk yield and on rations of fat and protein in milk, and to estimation the simple correlation coefficient between milk content of SCC and its` components in 80 lactating buffaloes in Babylon province / Iraq for the period from 9/2013 to 13/21/2014 . The results indicates that the prevalence of clinical mastitis was 9.735%, the SCC significantly increased with advanced number of lactation, there was significant increase of SCC in the second and third stage of lactation .There was variations in daily milk yield< 1500 kg may reach 975.63 ×10³ cells /ML of milk. The parity significantly influenced the SCC in dairy buffalo (p< 0.01) and significantly affected fat and protein content of milk (p<0.05). Significant changes in fat 7.15% were also observed with increasing SCC ˃1000×10³ cells/ML milk, while NS in protein rations were recorded. The correlation coefficient between SCC content of milk and fat 0.26 was positive and significant (p<0.05), and nonsignificant with protein 0.09, and lactation period and milk yield were -0.38 and -0.41 respectively were negative and significant (p<0.01).

Keywords: Buffalo, Mastitis Somatic cell count ,Parity , Milk contents.
