CellCheck counts cells targets rapidly

FARMERS now have the opportunity to achieve cell-count targets more rapidly with the assistance of CellCheck, a DIY testing kit supplied by National Milk Records.

Each kit holds up to 50 samples, identified by pre-paid address labels. NMR promises to return test results within three days, reducing the risk of escalating infection. The kit is said to be ideal for testing individual quarters. Sudden cell-count rises can be identified to one quarter and treatment targeted.

The service is available to non-members of NMR. A monthly subscription costs £5 in addition to the kit cost of £20. There is also a one-off cost option at £45 for 50 cows.
