Somatic cell-count (SCC) is the main indicator of milk quality and the presence of Mastitis, an inflammatory reaction (infection) of dairy herds.
Mastiline's machine enables dairy farmers to discover mastitis sub-clinical in an early phase and take appropriate actions. Mastiline’s proprietary technology offers a unique set of advantages over existing solutions. The device has a high sensitivity of detection, low price, is easy to use and is compatible with existing milking equipment and management systems on the farm. In addition, current diagnoses, almost exclusively done by external labs, take a number of days.
Farmers will be able to save costs as a result of mastitis prevention, reduce the use of antibiotics, increase the yield of the herd and get better pricing for good quality milk with a low somatic cell count.
