Join Anexa Dairy Vets for this relaxed, yet informative, veterinary podcast for dairy farmers and their farm staff. This podcast series, In One Ear and Out the Udder is aimed at all staff on the farm, who are interested in learning more about the animal health issues affecting dairy cows in New Zealand. Designed to be an easy-listen while you are bringing the cows to the shed for milking or hosing down the yard, these interview-style chats aim to help create common knowledge on farm and provide some points for discussion amongst the whole farm team.
In this episode of Anexa’s Podcast, In One Ear and Out the Udder, vets Emma Franklin and Jemma Guyton chat about the important process of the Milk Quality Consult and discuss how farmers can get so much more from the consult than simply a prescription for Dry Cow Therapy. The vets consider when the best time is to do your milk quality consult so you can make a tailored approach to drying off your herd while examining milk quality outcomes across the whole season – celebrating wins and identifying any areas for improvement. Jemma explains how beneficial it is to include all staff on the farm in the milk quality consult process so having the whole team listen to this podcast episode is the first step to setting your herd up for success.
