Tracking your herd or cow level SCC related milk loss just got a whole lot easier.

Introducing Spilt Milk by SSG, a smart phone application that allows producer to easily and quickly calculate SCC related milk loss.

In the January 2012 release of the Journal of Dairy Science, Dr. Hand with Dr. Kelton and Dr. Godkin published new findings which more accurately estimate the amount of milk loss due to mastitis and sub-clinical mastitis as measured by SCC. They found that milk loss has been significantly underestimated. This was found to be especially true in first lactation cows or high producers. They found that as milk production goes up, the impact of SCC also increases, so a high-producing cow loses a larger proportion of her milk.
