AbstractFull Text

The ICAR Recording Guidelines include provision for on-line milk analysis. However the guidelines are inconsistent with some of the practical realities of on-line milk analysis. Consequently, no milk analyser has been able to achieve ICAR approval to date. In the case of somatic cell count (SCC),...

AbstractFull Text

On-line somatic cell count (SCC) analysers automatically test for SCC during milking for individual cows, providing farmers with more measurements than conventional herd testing. The purpose of this study was to determine whether more frequent milk sampling increases detection of elevated SCC due...

AbstractFull Text

Milk samples were collected from all milkings and from all the automatic milking system (AMS) and were analysed for fat, protein, lactose and SCC (n=10, 10, 7 and 6 farms, respectively). All herds were comprised of mostly Holstein cows and herd size was on average 74±15 milking cows. Data on milk...

AbstractFull Text

International genetic trend study in Brown Swiss bulls has revealed the largest changes in genetic trend direction for somatic cell count (SCC) (Gorjanc et. al., 2011). Somatic cells in milk are represented by epithelial cells and leukocytes (immune cells), where the latter predominate and in case...

AbstractFull Text

The objective of this work is to provide an overview on (a) the validation and certification of FOSS's milk analysers, (b) working with FTIR technology/data and standardisation as part of quality assurance as well as (c) quality assurance for new milk-testing parameters. Besides extensive internal...

AbstractFull Text

The new CombiFossTM 7 DC is the latest generation milk analyser from FOSS. The instrument allows to test raw milk for up to 19 parameters, including the new Differential Somatic Cell Count (DSCC) parameter, simultaneously at a speed of up to 600 samples per hour. DSCC represents the proportion of...
