The dairy industry has seen a shift from a predominately contagious origin to environmental; this combined with increasing herd size has seen trends in somatic cell count and mastitis incidence beginning to rise.
At Endell’s we offer mastitis and cell count monitoring through the use of TotalVet, Interherd and Herd Companion as part of our monthly reporting system. We combine this with up-to-date knowledge and application of the DairyCo Mastitis Control Plan whilst being supported by our onsite laboratory.
