Poor disclosure of devices capability
Not sure of the capability of the device as it is not designed to be used with goats. Would be nice if this information was disclosed in the basic description rather than only in the manual. Could have saved myself the shipping fee. Therefor rating is based on lack of disclosure.
Good SCC management tool
This is a great tool to help monitor cows with high scc. Before using the Mas-d-tec we had a scc around 500,000 and since using it we have lowered out scc to around 250,000. My opinion its best suited for smaller farms <100 cows, as it can be time consuming testing each cow.
