Improving animal health in dairy farming by on-line monitoring of milk quality (SCC)

The goal is to develop an analytical instrument (sensor), and reagents, for automated monitoring of the health of the cow in the dairy industry, through on-line analyses of the somatic cell count in the milk for each individual milking of the cow. The developed instrument and reagents will be duration tested in a research dairy farm (WUR Dairy Campus/VHL University), to monitor the effect of the on-line measurement on herd health and milking efficiency.
