The Health Mate™ BHB Milk Test can quickly and easily measure the levels of Beta-hydroxybutyrate (BHB) in milk. BHB is one of the major ketone bodies formed during ketosis.
Subclinical Ketosis, a condition where the cow uses fat instead of carbohydrate as a source of energy, can be detected by measuring the levels of ketones in the milk.
A high level of beta-hydroxybutyrate is an indication that the cow is underfed or in a late stage of lactation.
Ketosis in cows can cause:
A decrease in milk production
