Why Milk Record?

  • To allow you to reduce Somatic Cell Counts – meaning farmers can identify and isolate cows with subclinical mastitis infection e.g. High SCC
  • To increase overall milk value A+B-C – so farmers can quickly identify the cows which are most profitable based upon milk yield and milk solids
  • To improve management information – allowing farmers to select the correct bull for a specific cow e.g. targeting cows with high SCC with low SCC bulls
  • To access quick & simple disease testing for your herd
  • To increase the value of your herd – in relation to stock for sale or if necessary disease compensation

DEEP INSIGHT INTO SCC

The SCC profile shows you the number of cows in each category and their performance since their last test. This will allow you to quickly monitor your SCC control programme. For example, are you achieving SCC control at milking? What are your cure rates? Is your herd suitable for selective dry cow therapy?

YOUR BEST AND WORST COWS
