The intracellular concentrations of electrolyte elements in the sweat glands of the cow, sheep and goat provide evidence of altered secretory activity upon thermal stimulation in the cow but give no indication of such change in the sheep and goat. The results support the view that increased secretory function contributes to the pattern of sweat output in the cow.
