  • a Mammary secretions were collected from individual quarters and were classified as nonmastitic or mastitic based on criteria described in Materials and Methods. The secretion was assessed for protein concentration to determine if increased chemotactic activity was related to increased protein concentration. M, mastitic; NM, nonmastitic.
