SmartSAMM is working to assist farmers in reducing bulk milk SCC and mastitis by connecting them with professionals. The page provides ways to find a milk quality adviser, a qualified milking machine tester, or a vet specialising in mastitis investigations. You can talk to your dairy company field rep or visit specific websites for advisers and testers. To find a vet, you can ask your local vet or look for one accredited by NMAC (National Mastitis Advisory Committee), who are qualified for on-farm investigations. The page also includes information on how to become an accredited vet in various regions.
