Unveiling the new Ekomilk Horizon on-farm mini-lab at the World Buiatrics Congress, July 2016, Dublin, Ireland

Real-time animal health and milk quality data on a Cloud-based sharing platform, on herd level and on individual level.

Unveiling the new Ekomilk Horizon at World Buiatrics Congress early July 2016 in Dublin (WBC2016): automatic somatic cell count (SCC) with Cloud upload and with mastitis monitor app, 0.04$/test, 45s avg/test, autofiltering+rinsing, guaranteed high accuracy with DHI and official milk control laboratory. An optional measurement module for fats, proteins, total solids and conductivity can be added. In this way, besides mastitis control and udder health evaluation also ketosis and acidosis can be evaluated.

Measurements can be performed on tank level (as an average of livestock herd) and on individual (and even udder quarter) level, especially for SCC.
