Northeast DHIA
Members Win
Quality Awards
Among the approxi
mate 4,500 Northeast
Dairy Herd Improve
ment Association
(DHIA) members who
are measuring the quali
ty of milk produced on
their farm with the
DHIA Somatic Cell
Count Report, 715 have
won Outstanding Quali
ty Milk Awards based
on 1993 records.
The DHIA Somatic
Cell Count Report is a
valuabale monthly
monitor of individual,
group average and herd
average somatic cell
counts. Somatic cells
are white blood cells
and milk secreting cells
normally found in milk.
The major factors con
tributing to high somat
ic cell count milk are
clinical and sub-clinical
udder infections. Low
somatic cell count milk
comes from healthy ud
ders and a clean, well
maintained environ
Northeast DHIA’s
Quality Milk Award
winners care about pro
ducing quality, low so
matic cell count milk.
They know that high so
matic cell count milk is
generally off-flavored,
has a decreased shelf
life and a decreased
yield of cultured milk
products. They also
know that high somatic
cell counts cost money,
as increased somatic
cell levels correspond to
permanent, significant
losses in milk produc
Constant monitoring
of barn and pasture
cleanliness, working
condition cleanliness
and cleanliness of milk
ing equipment, milking
technique, and udder in
fection is necessary to
achieve the low level of
somatic cell count re
cognized by the DHIA
Quality Milk Award.
The Northeast DHIA
congratulates all Qual
ity milk winners.
