The PortaBHB® Milk Ketone Test
Product Number: C33325
In Stock (Ships within 1-2 business days)
Quick, affordable, and accurate! This test kit is for detecting ketone bodies in cow milk. Ketosis occurs in dairy cattle when the demand for energy exceeds intake, resulting in a negative energy balance. It occurs frequently in the postpartum period, especially in high-producing cows. By detecting ketosis early, producers can take steps to avoid clinical health effects and loss of income. The PortaBHB® milk ketone test is a semi-quantitative dipstick for the detection of subclinical ketosis. Dip the test strip into a milk sample and compare to a color chart. The higher the concentration of BHB, the greater the color change. It’s that easy! Kit includes 100 test strips and instructions.
