Dairy Spares has extended its range of electronic sub-clinical mastitis detectors by adding a product that has four sample cups, instead of one.
This means that a milk sample can be collected from each teat more quickly and easily. The analysis results, from all four samples, are shown simultaneously and allow easy identification of suspect quarters.
Draminski mastitis detectors measure changes in the electrical resistance of milk. When a reading from one quarter is different from the others, this indicates the presence of sub-clinical mastitis.
So this tool offers producers a reliable early warning of a potential clinical mastitis case, and allows targeted monitoring of specific quarters, or cows.
The four-cup mastitis detector retails at £350 plus VAT.
