Individual Cow Somatic Cell Counts (SCC)

The most important factor affecting SCC milk from a quarter, a cow or a herd is a quarter of infection status. Various authors have reported an average SCC for the uninfected quarter to 170,000 to 214,000 cells/ml or the geometric average of 106,000 cells/ml. Somatic cell response of the infected cow will depend on the pathogen. You can find Saber Milk Sensor online. 

Individual cow somatic cell count is the product of the SCC measurement of all milk from all four quarters and production levels of the individual quarters. The number of infected quarters and total milk production is an important factor to be able to accurately classify as infected cattle by means of SCC. The dilutive effect of normal milk can cause mask infection. Researchers in Canada have found that cow's ability to correctly classify as being infected or not infected by SCC increased from 77.9% to 92.7% as the number of infected quarters increased from one to four quarters.

SCC from individual cows can span a very wide range of values. To classify cattle as infected or not infected with any SCC manner appropriate threshold level should be selected. This threshold will vary from herd to herd.

Regardless of the level of the chosen few infected and uninfected quarters will be misclassified. Increase the possibility of isolating the primary pathogens when the SCC quarter was above 200,000cells / ml. SCC is a composite of the quarter shows that the threshold value of about 250,000 cells/ml is reasonable to differentiate infected from noninfected 5/4. A threshold of 228,000 cells has been demonstrated to correctly classify over 85% of the cows.

How beneficial is Saber SCC For Milk Automation?

Until now the only way to get the correct results SCC (somatic cell count) for cows in your herd is to perform a herd test. It is consuming, expensive and exhausting time. conductivity tests are farmers who can come closest to the detection of mastitis in the barn, but the conductivity is far from accurate, and only give an indication of mastitis in cows. You can explore this link www.saberfarm.com/products/sorting-drafting-gate/ to know more about Saber SCC.

SCC Saber, the world's leading dairy sensor provides a true SCC tests, with results confirmed before the cow has finished milking. This means you have a somatic cell count results in real time for individual cattle, which allows the infection to be picked up much earlier.

Significantly Reduce your SCC

Farmers who have installed Saber SCC has been able to significantly reduce the level of SCC in herds they know exactly which cow level has improved and is able to pick them up at the level of sub-clinical.

Saber SCC automatic sensors, in-line sensor that provides you with live SCC (somatic cells) produce within two minutes cupping cows. Software on your phone or tablet allows you to record the results of the counting of somatic cells in cow, without the need for herd identification system. It could not be easier!

When you install the SCC Saber you will enjoy:

  • Results SCC is displayed directly on your phone / tablet.
  • Early warning of clinical mastitis and sub-clinical.
  • management of bulk somatic cell count increase.
  • Extended season due to an increase in the selection of milking cows to dry.
  • Increased profitability.
  • Saber SCC sensor works in both rotary and herringbone parlors and with or without an electronic animal identification system *.
