Best Milking Practices
There are currently no events scheduled for this course.
-Freemon Yoder, milker, Kimmel Brothers Farm
This program will help to increase productivity and profitability on dairy farms that participate.
Producers will understand the importance of early detection of clinical mastitis. In addition, producers will develop a written standard operating procedure for their milking facility. This plan will include a standard milking procedure that has a lag time of 60-90 seconds and a treatment protocol that identifies animals with greatest chance of cure. Producers will also implement the use of a strip cup, pre-stripping, milking gloves and CMT test.
A portion of this workshop will be on farm. Bring footwear that can be sanitized, as well as warm and clean clothing. We will provide plastic boots.
This program is eligible for 2 SmartStart credits from AgChoice Farm Credit.
