Mastitis & SCC decrease in Freestall with straw bedding, milking 670 cows
Senkovo’s objective was to improve milk quality while reducing consumption of resources and increasing profitability. Within 2 months of installing FutureCow Teatscrubber, Senkovo Farm achieved this. They experienced a drop in clinical mastitis cases from 75 to 38 and their SCC dropped from 460 to 170. These significant reductions led to premium bonuses of $12,000/month. Senkovo was also able to shave off 2.5 hours/day from their prep time resulting in more savings.

Big drop in monthly Mastitis cases in Double 30 with 3 milkers and 1 pusher
Upon install of the FutureCow Teatscrubber, Hamlin Valley was suffering from growing pains and inconsistent prep . Their initial improvements consisted of eliminating one position from the parlor by going from 4 milkers to 3. Although they eliminated a person, they still saw a decrease in prep time because of the consistent routine that had been established by using the Teatscrubber. In addition to the prep changes, they were able to lower their SCC, plate counts, and mastitis.
