Completed during the annual food safety consult. Overview of mastitis KPIs, determination of DCT and LCT policy, identification of the need for further investigation.
Farm visit, clinical examination and treatment
Lab tests - Mastatest, Bioscreen and standard culture services. Identification of bacteria involved and the sensitivity to antimicrobials.
Technician collected milk samples to identify the bacteria and sensitivity profiles behind high somatic cell count cows
Protect heifers from early season environmental mastitis. Use our team to assist with DCT application
Determine efficacy of Dry Cow Therapy, Teat sealant use in heifers and identify chronically infected cows.
Using the Mastitis Focus Report available in infovet, the vet provides a more in-depth review of the farm’s mastitis with a focus on new infection rates.
On-farm sessions for up to 8 farm workers focused on farm level best practice mastitis control: Prevention, detection, treatment, use of screening tools such as RMT, Milking routine and environmental management to reduce mastitis risk.
Analysis of all available data on a farm’s mastitis situation including BMSCC, Herd Test, Clinical Mastitis, New Infection rates, Bacterial data on file. This can be a prelude to a Milk Quality Consultation. Takes 1-2hrs depending on what information is available in Infovet.

A comprehensive investigation of the underlying causes of mastitis on a farm resulting in a plan to address these.
