A simple, convenient, electronic hand-held tool to detect mastitis in cows. Provides the immediate detection you need on your modern dairy operation. Eliminates the guesswork and time-consuming fuss of chemical tests.
How does it work?
Mas-D-Tec measures electrical conductivity in milk, identifying subclinical mastitis in individual quarters or cows. This allows you to act quickly, providing effective and economical control of mastitis in your dairy herd.
Simple to use and immediate results
The entire testing process is complete in just a few seconds per quarter!
Step 1: Squirt 2 ml milk sample (1-2 squirts) directly from teat into funnel-type opening at the top.
Step 2: Mas-D-Tec instantly measures and registers a reading on the 0-9 digital scale.
Step 3: Readings 4 and under indicate normal quarters or cows; readings 5 and above indicate subclinical mastitis.
Milk samples are purged when the next sample is introduced. No risk of cross contamination. No need to clean between quarters or cows. A simple rinse with clean water after each milking is all you need.
Hand-held design offers easy operation on the farm. Tests several thousand samples before needing to change the 9-volt battery. Features low battery warning and rugged, water-resistant case for long, dependable use in the milking parlor.
Includes 9-volt battery, O-ring grease and instruction manual. One year warranty.
