The CellCheck Milking For Quality Awards is an initiative to recognise and reward the excellence of Irish farmers who are currently achieving very high standards of udder health on their farm.  Since the inception of the Awards in 2014, FBD Insurance have sponsored the ‘Best 500’ Award given to the 500 milk suppliers nationally with the lowest, weighted annual average somatic cell count (SCC) for the previous year’s supply.  This year, two new categories have been added and are open to all Dairy Discussions Groups – Most improved group and Best SCC group.
