Celebrating the best milk quality Ontario has ever produced

July 19, 2021

Measuring somatic cell count (SCC) is one of the tools the industry uses to gauge animal health and milk quality. That’s why we’re excited to announce the weighted SCC average for Ontario in May was 160,000 cells/mL—truly a record achievement!

Low SCC numbers is an indication that Ontario dairy farmers have high standards when it comes to animal care and milk production. Paul Chaddock from Tansymoss Farms is one of Ontario’s top 12 herds for low SCC. Read all about how Chaddock strives for milk quality excellence in the June issue of Milk Producer.
