Genotype combination Number of samples Somatic cell score
AACC 72 4.15 ± 0.16a
AACD 24 4.05 ± 0.22a
AADD 2  
ABCC 20 3.89 ± 0.23ab
ABCD 91 3.84 ± 0.15ab
ABDD 11 3.75 ± 0.24ab
BBCC 1  
BBCD 16 3.71 ± 0.24ab
BBDD 30 3.43 ± 0.21b
  1. Least squares means with the same superscript for the same site have no significant difference (p > 0.05). Least squares means with the different superscripts for the same site differ significantly (p < 0.05)
