Protrack® SCC

Get somatic cell counts (SCC) results within two minutes of cupping with the Protrack SCC at-bail sensor (previously Cellsense).

The Protrack SCC automated milk sensor reduces the effort of SCC testing by doing all the hard work for you. Real time data identifies which cows might be susceptible to mastitis. Integrates with Protrack Vantage, ID, Milk, Drafter, Feed and BCS modules.

Before we had any automation our bulk cell count for the year was 170,000. The first year that we put the Protrack SCC in, that season the cell count was 125,000. The second was 119,000. The third season was 102,000. Last year the cell count was 65,000!

How Protrack SCC benefits your farm

Until recently, conductivity tests were the closest farmers got to detecting mastitis in the shed. But this method of detection lacks accuracy. By providing real time data collection Protrack SCC can give you a SCC test and confirm results before the cow has finished milking. When you install SCC sensors you can: 

  • detect infections much earlier, and receive early warnings of clinical and sub-clinical mastitis therefore eliminating the need to strip the entire herd
  • reduce SCC levels in your herd
  • improve bulk SCC management
  • extend milking seasons due to improved selection of cows for dry off
  • increase profitability
  • use in-depth SCC reporting to select cows for Dry Cow Therapy thus reducing antibiotic use
  • reduce running costs – each test costs just two cents.  

How it works

Herringbone

  1. Protrack SCC automatically tests 1mL of milk and determines the SCC result
  2. The results from the sensors and any alerts can be viewed on your smart device (or optional Touchscreen)
  3. The OWL flashing light system will alert you to the bail that an animal with a SCC is in
  4. With Protrack ID, SCC results are automatically matched to the animal, without ID , milk results can be manually assigned using your smart device
  5. Review cow history and herd-level reports to make real-time decisions about your herd and manage mastitis and bulk SCC levels
