Watch these videos to see the lengths to which people will go to open a bottle of wine in a pinch. If necessity isn't the mother of invention, the desire for a glass of wine certainly is.

Can Somatic Cell Counts Get Too Low? 



A high somatic cell count (SCC) is undesirable from the standpoint of quality, but some producers fear that a SCC that is too low might result in more cases of mastitis due to reduced bacteria-fighting capacity.

Somatic cells are white blood cells that fight infection and repair tissue damage. When the udder is infected, white blood cells move to the udder and into the milk to defend against the invading bacteria. This process is very important; without it, elimination of even mild cases of mastitis would be very slow with tissue damage increased. Somatic cell counts in the udder do not reflect the pool of cells which can be recruited from the blood to fight infections. Milk SCC simply measures the number of cells in the milk. The higher the SCC the greater the chance that the quarter is infected. The key to mastitis prevention is good management practices and healthy cows that can quickly fight mastitis battles when needed.

Video Screen.jpg

 Things are changing in the craft beer industry. For starters, it’s an insanely crowded marketplace with more than 5,300 breweries across America right now.

Well, maybe you should watch the video above, presented by Paul Gatza, director, and Bart Watson, chief economist for the Brewers Association.       


CAMTU Compressed Air Microbial Test Unit (Parker Balston)




Identify Sources of Contamination in Compressed Air and Improve Food Safety

The CAMTU compressed air microbial test unit identifies sources of contamination in compressed air. Compressed air is used in a broad range of applications in the food processing industry, such as mixing of ingredients, cutting, drying of product, transporting/propelling product through processing systems and packaging of final product. In many of these applications, compressed air is in direct contact or indirect contact with food product. The impurities in the compressed air may contaminate the food product, which can cause changes in color and taste, reduced shelf life, and exposure to bacteria and other micro-organisms. Such contamination can result in product recalls.


Features and Benefits:

  • Lightweight and ergonomically designed for ease of use
  • Constructed of durable polypropylene - easily sanitized
  • Pre-filled petri dishes with specialized tryptic soy agar designed to hold up to compressed air flow/pressure
  • No electrical supply required
  •  No refrigeration required for the petri dishes – 300 day shelf life
  •  Quick sampling time – 20 seconds

American Craft Beer Is Finally Getting Europe’s Respect




Back in the 1980s it went without saying that the best, most interesting brews came from Europe. Germany, Great Britain, and Belgium dominated the industry.

American craft brewers soon began mimicking those foreign beers, producing pale ales, pilsners, stouts, tripels and dubbels, bocks, and forerunners of what would become best-seller, IPA. The beers weren’t exactly the same as the ones from the old country, but they were good and they were fresh. And they only got better and better.
