dhia tool, bulk tank, somatic cell, mastitis
Heart of America DHIA lab services now provides a “hot list” of the 20 highest somatic cell count cows, noting not only the somatic cell count, but milk production, percent contribution to the bulk tank, and bulk tank count estimates with the cows removed consecutively from the tank. This valuable new tool from DHIA can be most useful to producers trying to manage bulk tank counts while addressing mastitis control issues in their herd.
