Producing a high-quality product should be a goal for everyone working on your farm. This program can help dairy owners, managers and employees to increase the quality of milk that is produced in Pennsylvania. The purpose is to teach the use of consistent milking practices that emphasize teat cleanliness, udder stimulation, teat end health and rapid milk flow while performing the most important job on the farm. Milking consistency affects cow well-being, mastitis risks and milk output. Participants will learn about the importance of early detection of clinical and sub-clinical mastitis, how to utilize records to make treatment decisions and which cows have the best chance for a cure. After completion of this program, participants will have the essential tools to produce high quality milk on their farm. This in turn, will increase income through increased milk production, increase premium benefits and decreased cost of treatment.
