Dairy Cow Tests
Somatic cell count testing in dairy cows (white blood cells in milk).
When the milk is received at the dairy processing plant it is automatically checked for the level of somatic cells present. All milk contains some level of somatic cells; the level of cells present is an indication of the quality of the milk and the health of the cows. Whenever a cow is subjected to stress, such as an injury or disease, the cell count rises. This is Mother Nature in action – white blood cells are created to fight off the stress.
We have monitored the somatic cell count in the entire milking herd for several months by alternating between the Blushield plugged in to the dairy barn and removed from the dairy barn. The results have been very consistent. The highest level reached without the Blushield has been 420, with the average reading at 360. The lowest reading with the Blushield plugged in to the dairy barn has been 120, with the average reading at 140.
Obviously the cows do not have cell count changes due to psychosomatic factors.
Some background on the EMF exposure of these cows: this particular herd of cows were pastured in New Zealand near a TV mast that was put up in the 1970’s. It had been noticed that prior to the TV mast going up that cows grazing in that area were generally happy and healthy, but after the mast was installed, the farmers had to start putting out salt blocks for the cows, which is indicative of higher levels of biological stress burning through minerals much more quickly. There were also more instances of mastitis in dairy cows, and the somatic cell count of the milk started increasing once the TV mast was installed in the area.
The testing with Blushield was done around the year 2000, and the somatic cell count of their milk consistently went down within about 10 days of plugging in the Blushield devices. Their other previous stress markers went away, as well.
