Helen, I am not sure if you want somthing to treat high SCC or to simply lower SCC by prevention. We can prevent what is often treated and we can lower SCC as low as you want to go. We have large dairies milking 80 to 87 pounds a day as low as 50,000 scc going 2 to 3 months at a time with out pulling and mastitis cows.

a pressure difference at the teat end combined with milk stasis and a poor immune system that releases toxic steroids will result in poor maintanance of the corpus luteum due to the lack of progestrone and prostaglanda resulting in low preg rates pre embryonic failure, mastitis, heel warts, hyperkeratosis, excessive NEFA mobilizATION AND THE LIST GOES ON. SO YES, HIGHER MILK YIELDS WILL RESULT IN ...

we see BST work the best where we have excellent feed and ample sunlight.When we supress the immune system we do see steroid release that has a negative effet on the CL for reproduction. it is extremly important to keep the cows immune system at her peak to keep IMIs low. as long as we are harvesting milk correctly, we can eliminate oxytocin and we can minimize mastitis from post fresh and high pr ...

Boo Ali i would suggest that you look at feed effeciency, rate of passage, are you harvesting milk correctly and what is the cow telling you. I see a lot of different nutritionist feeding a lot of different rations all for the same rumen. Most nutritioniost need to feed what the agronomist prescribed 9 months earlier and their hands are tied from doing a real good job. When we harvest milk incorr ...

I would suggest to go to John Buntings dairy blog to get the facts on what the goverment is doing and the corruption that is ruining our food industry in the usa. We need to price milk based on quality so we can start to fix our health care system

good article covering many of the problems man creates. now all we need to do is figure a way to hold management resoposible to eliminate mastitis as it is 100[percent] man made.

The article about Sand Bedding Dairy farmer has Benefits and Costs covers a lot, but where we are pulling sand out of the freestalls and going in with green manure we are seeing a lot of positive results reducing SCC, clinicals and increasing the immune system. If you are seeing E-coli, streps, etc., you better be sampling your teat dip and fine tuning your milking system.

I agree with Hafiz and that we need to create awareness as there is no other disease known to man with the magnitude and impact of MASTITIS. We also see in the US that the smaller the dairy the more the mastitis with the exception of key dairymen and the same is true for large dairies. The right Equipment, teat dip and the immune system of the cow are essential in eliminating mastitis.

When we go on dairies and see what the cows are telling us, we usually find a lot simply by testing the water. When we see 25ppm pseudomonas in the water along with everything else we test for it is amazing we can even make milk production on some of these dairies. And hydrogen peroxide in the water is not the answer. We have seen DMI increase 2-4 pounds and feed effeciencies increase from .2 to . ...

We are seeing more lameness where we see more slopes on barns placing pressure on the corium band and cows are having a harder time entering the parlor resulting in slower milk outs and higher SCC. Moldy feed increases lameness due to the toxins and the inability for the rumen to function, especially with lower milk prices and not being able to get the proper nutrition to a cow. We see more lamene ...
