Underestimating the cost of mastitis is a general problem in the sector. Taking the specific figures from the farm can be an eye-opener! The app is an easy tool, 5 steps and you get an estimation of the total cost of mastitis on your farm.
The app will give you a detailed report indicating what is the impact of clinical mastitis, replacement cost and somatic cell count on your finances. By setting up some goals for udder health and milk quality, the app will also let you know what can be the financial benefit if you reach your targets.
