Is a “good enough” dry cow program really enough?

You do all you can to improve the wellness of your herd and the profitability of your dairy operation. But are you doing right by your dry cows? Milk quality and greater returns begin on the last day of lactation. And a really good dry cow program includes three steps:

  • Cure
  • Seal
  • Boost

Hear from producers who are taking these three steps to increase production, profitability and milk quality on their dairy operations.

Salmonella reduction

Develop your own Salmonella reduction plan

Determine your herd’s risk factors for a Salmonella outbreak and develop your personal Salmonella reduction plan with a new, quick, easy-to-use online tool. The Salmonella risk assessment reviews on-farm practices and helps to identify gaps where the disease could come onto your dairy. Each dairy that completes the short, online assessment also will receive a customized Salmonella reduction plan, which can be used with the herd veterinarian to further strengthen control efforts.
