Dairy cow health and disease detection of dairy cows
The herd’s health management must be based on quality information. Our milk analysis and data management services offer the possibility to detect bovine diseases and to monitor the health of dairy cows in a simple and inexpensive way. With your consent, your herd data can be forwarded to your veterinarian to be used in his or her own herd health analysis and management tools.

Detecting and monitoring Ketosis in your dairy cows
Ketosis is a metabolic disease common in early lactation, but often difficult to detect. Our KetoLab service can detect an indicator of ketosis directly in your milk recording samples. With no extra effort and at an affordable cost, KetoLab allows you to monitor the incidence of ketosis at the herd level and make any necessary corrections.
The presence of ketosis in a herd is often caused by problems in managing the transition period. In this sense, KetoLab is an effective tool to complement the Transition Cow Index® (available in Quebec).
Call on your advisor to review your transition management practices and tell you all about recommended courses of action to help prevent ketosis.
