"The Best Milking Practices for Hispanics workshop helped my workers to better understand best milking practices. My somatic cell count has dropped and the milkers are good at spotting mastitis and keeping the cows clean. My workers and I appreciate that Penn State Extension Dairy offers a program in Spanish; there are not a lot of other programs offered for Spanish-speaking milkers. And they enjoyed attending!"
-Gerri Goldscheitter, owner, Goldscheitter Dairy
Producers will understand the importance of early detection of clinical mastitis. Participants will implement the use of a strip cup, pre-stripping, milking gloves and California Mastitis Test (CMT).
