On-Farm Culturing of Mastitis

Would you like to improve the overall quality of milk produced? Are you concerned about clinical mastitis or are you looking to improve your treatment protocols? Is the SCC of your herd too high? If you answered yes to any of these questions, on-farm milk culturing can be an effective way to improve these things on your operation.

Interested producers should note that the success or failure of an on-farm culturing program is dependent upon the motivations, training and support of personnel involved. However, materials needed are readily available and with proper training a clear advantage of receiving timely culture results can be seen.
