Welcome to the Quality Count$ Website

Quality Counts-LogoQuality Count$ is a statewide campaign to improve milk quality in Minnesota. It is perhaps more important for dairies to lower SCC and improve milk quality today than when the original Quality Count$ program began in 2003. When quality milk is produced, everyone wins—the cow, the producer, the processor, and the consumer.


Thank you to all who have contributed to the Quality Count$ materials. Special thanks to Jeff Reneau, U of M Professor Emeritus, for his expertise in milk quality and mastitis, and for the many hours of work he dedicated to this project. And a special thanks to Lenny Petersson, IBA, Inc., for his personal contributions and encouragement in having us update this resource for the dairy industry.
