Mitchell Park - Farmers Weekly Apprentice of the Year
"It is well documented globally the concerns about antibiotic resistance at an on farm level and this is something that I feel very strongly about. I feel that it is our responsibility to start sourcing and using alternative products rather than just reaching into the medicine cabinet for the antibiotics every time there is a problem. One of the ways we are managing to do this is using the Healthy Udder Bolus.
Since using the Healthy Udder Bolus our cell count has halved and we have used next to no antibiotics in the fight against mastitis, with all the milk still able to into the tank its a great product that I would highly recommend"

"Somatic Cell Count on our farm has never been lower since I started using the 'Healthy Udder Bolus' from Matrix Animal Health. We are also delighted with how the bolus clears up cases of clinical mastitis without any antibiotics allowing us to put all the milk into the tank.
We pick out problem cows with high SCC's from our milk recording and give them the bolus and in most cases, the SCC will be cut in half. It also takes the worry away if we have a member of staff doing the milking that there is no chance of contaminating the milk with a antibiotic treated cow's milk ending up in the bulk tank".
