Thermoduric Bacteria

A growing number of milk processors are testing milk for thermoduric bacteria and penalising for counts above >500 cfu/ml. With high counts associated with milk quality and shelf-life issues, it is likely that thermodurics could join somatic cell counts (SCC) and bactoscans on the list of routinely monitored parameters in the not too distant future. Understanding your farm’s levels and adopting good cow and milking plant cleanliness is a must to keep counts under control. This dairy insight looks at where thermoduric bacteria are found and how to prevent them getting into your milk.
