Milk Quality Dashboard Calculator

May 17, 2011

To enable you to estimate how much subclinical mastitis is costing you, try out this new milk quality dashboard calculator designed by Jeff Bewley at the University of Kentucky.

For example, if you’re somatic cell goal is 200,000 cells/ml but your herd is currently at 350,000 SCC, the dashboard calculates a monthly milk loss of $3,681 at $15/cwt. Annual loss would be $44,000.
If you’re able to reduce your herd’s SCC to 250,000, monthly losses drop to $1,468 and annual losses to $17,625.
The dashboard allows you to adjust SCC levels, herd production, milk price and bonus quality levels.
