|Abstract||The value of herd somatic cell counts (SCC) in evaluating mastitis control programmes is pointed out; in conjunction with DHIA measures, a herd SCC programme should enable farmers to maintain SCC at less than 500 000/ml in 90% of cows. High individual cow SCC are discussed as indicators for culling, early drying-off, and milk culture and antibiotics sensitivity testing, but traditional mastitis therapy based only on high SCC is not recommended..|
