DNA Testing For Mastitis

More and more producers are turning to advanced technology to address a historical dairy industry issue, mastitis! DNA-based testing for mastitis can provide detection in ways that traditional culture can’t, and enables a variety of strategic testing programs. These include high somatic cell count targeted testing; bulk tank or group surveillance; fresh cow evaluations and hospital pen follow-up. To find out more about mastitis detection tools that NorthStar offers click here.



Addressing The BLV Challenge

About 50% of dairy cows in the U.S. are infected by Bovine Leukosis Virus (BLV)! In addition to causing carcass condemnation due to tumors, new research indicates BLV infection is also associated with decreased milk production and cow longevity. To help producers address this challenge, MSU Extension and the College of Veterinary Medicine are inviting producers to participate in a program to measure and reduce the prevalence of BLV in Michigan dairy herds. Through educational outreach and diagnostic testing, the program is designed to measure herd BLV prevalence, identify risk factors, facilitate management changes, and assess the impact of those changes. BLV testing through the project will be provided at a 50% discounted rate. To learn more click here or find a meeting near you where the program will be discussed.
