OBJECTIVE To measure the economic impacts attributable to an increase in bulk-tank somatic cell count (BTSCC) on US dairies. DESIGN Meta-analysis of data from various sources. PROCEDURE Economic impacts attributable to reduced milk production associated with an increase in BTSCC (> or = 200,000 cells/mL) in dairy cows during 1996 were estimated from supply-and-demand curves for milk and from an estimate of the effect of increased BTSCC on milk production. RESULTS Reduced milk production… CONTINUE READING
