BactoBreakdown

What is BactoBreakdown testing?

The BactoBreakdown service is a combination of both the Parlour Hygiene Suite and Mastitis ID.  The test is useful for identifying the cause of either bactoscan or SCC problems (or both).  The Bactobreakdown suite is carried out on non-preserved bulk milk samples routinely collected by NML and consists of parlour hygience, SCC and mastitis ID.

Is this test for you?

If your bactoscan levels are rising, this can be caused by bacteria most commonly related to the milking parlour and plant hygiene.  This service will help pinpoint specific areas that could be causing high Bactoscan results such as bulk tank cleaning, plant cleaning or contamination from cows e.g. insufficient teat preparation or certain types of mastitis.

What is involved?

The Bactobreakdown test costs £45.00 + VAT.  All results are reported on Herd Companion and can be sent via post or email as well.
