Milk Quality/Mastitis Lab


Nationwide average somatic cell count (SCC) levels are around 275,000.
Herds with SCC <200,000 will generate $100 more per cow per year as compared to herds >200,000

Increased profits come from:

  • Increased milk production
  • Decreased replacement costs
  • Less discarded milk
  • Fewer drug costs and vet fees
  • Decreased labor costs
  • Increased processing yields

Dairy Comp's newletter from last quarter 2007:
The US dairy herd is making 40% more milk using 40% of the cows and only 62% of the feed it used 30 years ago.
