Never used it by the cup full. All I ever used was the cap tabs or the syringe type liquid for infusion. I'd call my coop field man and let him check the milk. I'd hate to load it on a tanker and then have to buy the whole load.

How the he77 did it get in the milk anyway??

I dont no if any got into there tank or not but they were discussing the difference between a infused quarter being milked and i geuss the sanitizing solution being used to clean a dirty jar between cows and it a getting let down into the milk line. But the farmer said he had a helper milk and infused quarter in to the tank with about 4,500 lbs of milk and it didnt test hot was curious because all i know about it is that its a sanitizer. Vet comes next tues. again for herdcheck get the whole story then, was just getting some meds and kinda easdropping , bad habbit when the convo involves cows.

Why in the world would they infuse a quarter with nolvasan? I only used it for uterine infusion.

What stupidity. If that was actually done, it will probably ruin the quarter. Poor cow.

Yes- it can be used to kill quarters. Also iodine and formalin have been used to kill a chronic mastitic quarter. It does induce a strong inflammatory response and pain, so I've infused with lidocaine and then used banamine and dex systemically.

Not sure how much has to be used to contaminate a load of milk. It wouldn't test "hot" regardless as it's not an antibiotic. The usually snap tests for antibiotic testing pick up penicillin, tetracyclines, and commonly used antibiotics. Nolvasan aka chlorhexidine is a disinfectant.

Silly....if you want to kill a quarter infuse with 50 CC's of 7% iodine and then place a castration band on the teet....the teet will eventually fall off, and the quarter will be slick as a baby's butt and dead.

All of my customers cut them. I've never heard an explination but I'm sure it's because they don't trust the milkers.
