Every season we have herds grading or struggling with high somatic cell counts around calving. We have Vets available who have had extra training in mastitis and milk quality management. They are accredited by Fonterra and can access demerit relief if you have been grading, to help cover the cost involved with solving a milk quality problem. We can attend an afternoon milking with extra Technicians to help identify cows causing the HSCC and get your SCC under control. The accredited Vet can then work with you to identify and deal with the specific processes causing this problem on your farm and prevent future issues.
Give your Vet a call if you want to discuss this further, we’re here to help.
