Serum and milk iron levels during sheep intramammary infection caused by coagulase-negative staphylococci


The concentration of iron (Fe) in the milk and serum of sheep was determined before and during experimental intramammary infection (IMI) by coagulase-negative staphylococci (C-NS). Fe concentration of normal milk and serum samples was 0.24 Μg/mL and 1.56 Μg/mL respectively. Presence of C-NS in the mammary gland resulted in a significant increase in milk… (More)
