DRY COW THERAPY

Drying off is the single most important event of the year for managing mastitis. There are two major goals at dry off; to cure existing subclinical mastitis infections and prevent new infections during the dry period and around calving. To achieve this, and do it well, requires having a well-thought-out plan and selecting the right products and protocols that best suit your client's specific goals for managing mastitis.

To help, MSD Animal Health has produced a series of Top Farmers Know-How videos on dry off. It's all designed to spark conversations geared for better outcomes and all because we believe... INVESTING IN BEST-PRACTICE IS ALWAYS A GOOD IDEA.
