CROPP Quality Program
SOMATIC CELL ADJUSTER:
- FMMA type formula yields $.48 cents per 100,000 on a linear premium basis. The hinge point is 350,000 with a neutral zone between 300,000-350,000. The deduction formula is $.48 per 100,000 over 350,000 on a linear basis. Maximum deduct level is at a cell count of 1,000,000. As an example, a somatic cell count of 250,000 would result in a $.48/cwt premium, while a somatic cell count of 450,000 would result in a $.48/cwt deduct.
