Measurements from milk tank, or down to animal udder quarter level
Mastitis is one of the biggest and most costly diseases in dairy farming today. It is important to detect an infected udder as early as possible in order to prevent the spread of mastitis. The direct DCC generated somatic cell count, provides the information needed for strategic decision making, e.g. separating mastitis cows, placing high somatic cell count cows last in the milking order and initiating early medical treatment. The measures taken will ensure the quick recovery of infected animals, minimal milk production loss as well as reducing the spread of mastitis through the herd.
