An essential reason to record and evaluate patterns of cow somatic cell count (SCC) within a dairy herd is to help in making clinical decisions on the control of mastitis. An understanding of when new infections occur and how patterns of infection influence herd bulk milk somatic cell count (BMSCC) are critical when implementing mastitis control because it enables advisors to target specific problem areas. The objective of this research was to evaluate individual cow SCC patterns in terms of… CONTINUE READING
