"Udder Comfort is a tool to help me manage our milk quality. It's part of our early protocol for mastitis. But the main thing is we use it in the close-up pen and on fresh cows to get the edema off as quickly as possible, so they are easier to milk and milk out completely. We have the close-up cows in headlocks once every day, so anyone with edema gets the udder sprayed with Udder Comfort once every day until calving. We start this three weeks before calving and continue after calving, if they need it. Udder Comfort really helps with edema in our fresh cows, and especially on the heifers. We see fewer udder problems now. The milkers use the spray willingly because they see how well it works. They see the benefits, and they like the ease of milking the fresh cows now."

"We use Udder Comfort for everything: fresh cows, show cows, you name it. We also stick with Udder Comfort because it really works after calving and to soften hard quarters."

"We've been using Udder Comfort for a year. We had tried other products, but this one is definitely more effective. When we started our somatic cell counts (SCC) were 230 to 240,000, and 200,000 was the lowest we could get. Now, we're averaging 180,000 and had some counts as low as 140,000. We first tried samples of Udder Comfort on some cows after the World Ag Expo a year ago. We saw it was immediately effective, so we put it our regular protocol. It's a good tool for helping us manage SCC, and our rate of recurrence is definitely better now. Our employees see the benefits to the cows. If we run low on supply, my guys let me know."

“We were surprised by our results with Udder ComfortTM. We used the new yellow spray, which has natural coloring. Our SCC had been running 140-170,000. We could not believe how squirting this spray on the outside of the udder would cut our somatic cell count. But it worked. We are able to maintain our bulk tank SCC down at 80-100,000 by spraying every fresh udder after both milkings for 4-5 days after they calve.”
Alan M., Mt. Vernon, Washington
"We use Udder Comfort because it works. It helps with milk letdown on fresh heifers. So we put it on after each milking for several days after calving. When we are able to increase circulation and comfort, we see far less risk of infections in those fresh animals…We rely on Udder Comfort as our first line of defense at the first sign of any swelling. That’s when we lay it on, continually, after each milking, until the problem is gone. Generally, that does it."

"We use quite a bit of Udder Comfort and we use it mostly before calving. Udder Comfort is the best product we have ever used. Applying it prefresh is one of the strategies we used to bring our counts down to 180,000. It gets the extra swelling out of the udders and makes them soft and pliable. We've been doing this for over 2 years. The swelling is gone fast. The udders have less congestion. SCC is lowered tremendously, plus the fresh animals come into the tank quicker and with softer udders. Best thing we ever did."

"I’ve used Udder Comfort for 8 years in herds I’ve owned or managed, ranging from 1,000 to 5,000 cows, and I have to say I just love this product. It does everything I want it to: it gets the pliability of the udder back for easier and cleaner milkout, a faster flow and comfort for the cow."
Paul L., Hill Top Jersey Farm,
"Udder Comfort has been part of our routine for three years. It contributes to improved milk quality and pounds of milk shipped…Cows are back in the milking stream faster, so we lowered our treatment costs and ship more milk from our dairy. Our employees see the value and like the blue identifying color."
Charlene D., Walmoore Holsteins, milking 850 cows with SCC 115,000 to 129,000
"All our fresh cows get Udder Comfort every day for the first week after they calve, or until their SCC is testing low enough to go into the milk tank. With the swelling gone, their quarters milk out easier, which in turn aids in mastitis prevention and production of higher quality milk."
Peter R., Windyhill Dairy, milking 136 cows,
"This is a definite asset for milk quality. We spray firm quarters three times a day for one to two days. They soften up and usually resolve on their own. We have definitely reduced our need for antibiotic treatments…It’s the go-to trigger next to the towels in the parlor."
Ramsey Family, Paradise Valley Farms, milking 410 Holsteins,
"We use Udder Comfort on hard quarters, udder edema and fresh two year-olds, especially. We always have it with us to rub down after showing. Udder Comfort is a quality product that is natural, easy to use and convenient. It reduces edema, no question about that. There are tons of products out there, but we found our best results with Udder Comfort. Fresh Cows are more comfortable so they simply do better."
Dwight S., Pennwood Farms, milking 600 Holsteins and 80 Jerseys,
"A nice aged ewe had twin lambs, and then four days after lambing she became sick and off feed. I checked her udder and found one quarter was hot and as hard as a rock with mastitis. Rather than use antibiotics on her, I took my tube of Udder Comfort and rubbed the lotion over the entire quarter. I did this every day for a week and after just three days the swelling was greatly reduced. By the end of the week, her milk was completely restored to white milk. And her lambs kept on nursing even with the Udder Comfort on the udder. I kept my eyes on the lambs to see if they got gaunt at any time, and they didn’t. Their performance on the milk was excellent. I have never seen such a handy, all-natural and effective product. It’s a must to have on hand for lambing season."
