Mean body temperature of LSCS (Low Somatic Cell Score) and HSCS (High Somatic Cell Score) goats. Rectal temperature was monitored throughout the study. A temperature increase was only significant (paired t-test, p=0.05) at the 24 and 30 h time points and reached a maximum 30 h after infection. A paired t-test was applied to milk SCC of right udders in LSCS and HSCS goats to test if the changes at each time point were significant. No significant difference was observed in mean body temperature of LSCS and HSCS goats at different time points.
