We milk around 230 cows, and we have an average cell count of around 40,000 to 50,000 cells. We are firm believers in the
PortaSCC milk test. We use it on a daily basis. The PortaSCC can give you a 50,000 to 3 million reading.
If you are looking for something a little bit more exact and more precise, the PortaSCC is definitely a good choice.

The PortaSCC® milk test works! You can tell if a cow has a problem. You don’t have to wait
for results from the co-op. I can see how bad or good the cow is before the SCC gets really bad. I use the
test to check all fresh cows before putting the milk in the bulk tank. Everyone who wants high quality milk should be doing that.”
Kevin Cavanaugh from Leslie, Michigan, is the owner of Ireland Bells Dairy and a three-time Top Quality winner of the
Michigan Milk Producers Association. His family has been in dairy business for four generations.
The PortaSCC® milk test is the greatest thing I have found in 12 years! I use the PortaSCC® milk test to
pinpoint problem quarters. Anyone who has cows has problems at one time or another.
Cletus Eash, an organic dairy producer from Indiana, uses the PortaSCC® milk test to check fresh and treated
cows, and to retest cows with high DHIA results. He tests his cows with the PortaSCC® milk test routinely,
resulting in a bulk tank reading around 150,000.
The PortaSCC® milk test is easy to use. It helps to identify suspicious cows and treat accordingly
William Judge from Ontario, Canada, has been in the dairy business for over 50 years. He uses the
PortaSCC® milk test as a routine mastitis practice to test cows at freshening, check suspicious cows
and re-test cows with high DHIA results.
We use it [the PortaSCC® milk test] to determine what cows to withhold from the bulk tank to keep
the tank average low. Our current somatic cell count is under 100, 000, and the PortaSCC® milk test
is one of the reasons.
Mr. Leon Corse is a certified organic farm owner from Whitingham, Vermont. His family has been in the dairy
business for over 140 years. Mr. Corse currently owns 60 Holsteins and uses the PortaSCC® milk test as a
routine mastitis management practice by checking all fresh cows before putting the milk into the bulk tank.
Because we trust the PortaSCC® milk test, we test every cow when she freshens. If our cell count starts to get high, we check the suspected cows again.
Anna Fritz, the owner of Fritz Dairy Farm in Minerva, Ohio who has been in dairy business for over 50 years.
She has been using the PortaSCC® milk test to test her herd for early signs of sub-clinical mastitis.
She tests selected cows weekly to keep the somatic cell count at the lowest level.
Excellent product! The PortaSCC® milk test is very easy to use and
understand. It is fast and simple. No more guessing what the somatic
cell count is.
The Rachwal Brothers of Weyauwega, Wisconsin, have been milking cows for
over 19 years since taking over the family business started in 1951. They use
the PortaSCC® milk test to check suspicious cows, re-test cows with high DHIA
results, and to monitor treated cows.
