Journal of Dairy Science highlights article by CARD researchers

An article written by two CARD researchers, David Hennessey and Helen Jensen, along with Fengxia Dong at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, will be highlighted on the Journal of Dairy Science website for the next month.

The article, published by the journal in September, examines factors of somatic cell count in milk produced by US dairies. The US has chosen to retain a less-stringent standard on somatic cell counts than other countries, and the authors use various methods to find characteristics, such as farm location and herd age, that lead to higher somatic cell counts.
