This study compared concentrations of amyloid A in bovine milk with the cell-based indicators of intramammary inflammation, somatic cell count and California Mastitis Test. Mammary quarter data pertaining to 180 cows were categorised according to concentrations of serum amyloid A in the cow of origin. Ranked correlation, ranked regression and receiver operator characteristics all demonstrated acceptable agreement between milk amyloid A concentrations and cell-based indices. There were some indications of reduction in this agreement, in cows with raised concentrations of serum amyloid A. However, there were also indications that serum amyloid A did not significantly influence milk amyloid A. The results of the current study indicate that milk amyloid A exhibits good correlation with established cell-based indicators of intramammary inflammation.
