The standard method for somatic cell counts in goat milk is the direct microscopic method after a pyronin Y-methyl stain. It has been reported, however, that are found to differ by measuring methods, but. A total of forty eight goat milk samples from eight farms were compared by pyronin Y-methyl stain, ADAM-SCC in National Institute of Animal Science, and Somacount 500 in Chungbuk Veterinary Service. The average SCC of the samples was cells/mL by pyronin Y-methyl stain, cells/mL by ADAM-SCC, and cells/mL by Somacount 500. The correlations between the methods were not significant. SCC measuring equipment should be developed for reducing the SCC in goat milk, and pyronin Y-methyl green stain for estimating SCC in goat milk should be included in NVRQS Notice for livestock products processing and composition standards.
