30 Apr CELLCHECK TIP OF THE MONTH – Milk Recording – Don’t delay, get started today!
Many farmers will wait until most, or even all of the herd has calved before doing the first milk recording of the season……don’t wait! The sooner you start to milk record, the sooner you will identify infected cows that may not have any clinical signs. Early lactation mastitis is a high risk and dealing promptly with new infections will give you the best chance of curing them, and protecting the rest of the herd.
Early milk recording will also give you invaluable information on the success of your dry cow treatment, and management of your dry cows and in-calf heifers. The CellCheck Farm Summary Report looks specifically at mastitis control during the dry period and at calving, but it can only do this for cows that have a milk recording within 60 days of calving. So to get maximum value from your milk recording, if you haven’t already done a milk recording this season, get started now!
