UdderCheck mastitis test

Bovine milk test

UdderCheck is an effective tool for monitoring udder health. UdderCheck measures Lactate Dehydrogenase (LDH), an enzyme present in milk when cells are damaged from udder infection. LDH is correlated to SCC and is not as easily affected by conditions such as stress, nutrition, parity, etc. LDH levels often rise earlier than SCC, making it an excellent marker for early detection of mastitis. In just 2 minutes, this milk dipstick test provides semi-quantitative results that are compared to a color chart.
