Craig Pearson of Bijou Hill Dairy located in Byers, Colorado has had the Silver Bullet installed since April 2012 and has experienced outstanding results.
“During this time, Silver Bullet has sampled several of the troughs at Bijou Hill Diary and sent the samples to an independent laboratory for biological testing. The tests show a 10,000-fold reduction in coliforms, 100-fold reduction in HPC, a ten-fold reduction in Staphylococcus Aureus (Staph), a ten-fold reduction in Escherichia Coli (E. Coli), and Listeria has been nearly eradicated.
We at Bijou Hill have seen excellent results while using the Silver Bullet system:
Somatic cell counts have gone done by 100,000 cells, and the lower cell count appears to be stable
The cows are drinking out of troughs that they never used to drink out of
In our milk chiller water, we have seen a reduction of bacteria to an undetectable level
We believe that the overall health of our herd is much better than we have ever seen it before
