Selective vs. Blanket Dry Cow Therapy (SDCT vs. BDCT)

SDCT is encouraged as a means of reducing antimicrobial usage at dry-off . Focusing on identifying cows which need antimicrobial treatment at drying-off is key, while ensuring teat sealants are only used for healthy, untreated quarters.

It can be applied in most farms, but is dependent on:

  •  the herd Udder Health situation being under control:
    • Bulk tank milk SCC counts are regularly <180,000 c/ml 
    • Low infection pressure i.e. the number of clinical cases in the last 3 months 
  • Production level: the higher the average, the higher the proportion of cows producing > 15 litres at dry-off

Willingness of the farmer & milking staff to implement

Herd udder health under control
Willingness to apply SDCT

Bulk tank SCC < 180 000

Healthy cow
Last 3 individual SCC < 100 000
And no clinical mastitis
Internal Teat Sealant
Infected cow
1 / last 3 SCC > 100 000 or
Clinical mastitis in last 6 months
Antibiotic dry cow tubes (ask your vet)
+ Internal Teat Sealant
