Hydrometer measurement in globulin and IgGl concentration measured by the radial immunodiffusion technique were compared for 915 samples of first milking colostrum from Holstein cows. Least squares analysis of the relationship between hydrometer measurement and IgGl concentration was improved by log transformation of IgGl concentration and resulted in a significant linear relationship between hydrometer measurement and loglo IgGl concentration; 9 = .469. At 50 mg of globulidml of colostrum, the… CONTINUE READING
