SCC, MUN
& Component Testing

For DHI and non-regular DHI herds, individual cow milk samples can be analysed on a per-test basis for Fat, Protein, and Somatic Cell Count (SCC), as well as Milk Urea Nitrogen (MUN), Johne's, Leukosis and Mastitis.

Results are returned to the producer directly from the lab, or faxed to your vet's office or other source.

Somatic Cell Count (SCC)
Individual cows are analysed for SCC levels. The report also lists the individual cow linear score and summarizes results on a herd trend basis (DHI herds only). Non-DHI herds receive raw lab results.

Copies of the results can be sent directly to the nutritionist, advisor, or herd veterinarian.

Milk Urea Nitrogen (MUN)
MUN analysis involves measuring urea levels in milk which is a useful tool for managing and optimizing a feeding program.
