I was using chlorohexidine dip but went back to iodine (hypred concentrate) about 12 months since,if anything less mastitis but we’re using a lot of lime this winter.

Ark shield from joe Riley in Wexford works well for me. He has an excellent chlorine free detergent too

Stray electricity could be a issue too
Scc was high here all last spring, I thought it could have been stray electricity in my new shed. Milking machine man was out one day and I turned on the machine. Straight away he heard a problem with the pulsating. Scc dropped at the next collection.

If you get your machine tested it will show any shortfalls in your pulsators . Things to look at yourself is the pipework. If any of your rubberware is squeezed on a bend or cable tied make sure there is no restriction as that can effect your pulsation and in turn scc. When is the last time you changed your liners?
