Milk is considered the most complete aliment, being abundant in high quality nutritive substances. The composition of goat milk, as well as its quality, differs between breeds and living area. Milk somatic cells are an indicator of hygienic quality as well as of the health of the mammary gland. The research aims the comparative analysis of milk quality depending on breed, as well as mammary gland health, goats being selected out of a group of 60 raised and fed in identical conditions in a private farm in Cluj County, considered clinically healthy being at the second lactation. For the determination there have been analyzed individual samples of raw milk harvested during July-September 2014 from Alpine (n=10) and Carpathian (n=10) breeds goats, using an automatic device for somatic cells count of Fossomatic type. Following the corroboration of data for 6 Alpine goats the number of somatic cells was over the maximum admitted limit (400000/ml milk), respectively 4 were under the limit. Fort the Carpathian breed 8 of them were between limits and only 2 went over this limit. The conclusion of this study highlights the acquired resistance of indigene breeds compared to imported ones.
