Mastitis investigation using the DairyCo mastitis plan on a Yorkshire dairy farm - Moorhouse - 2012 - Livestock - Wiley Online Library

Mastitis investigation using the DairyCo mastitis plan on a Yorkshire dairy farm - Moorhouse - 2012 - Livestock - Wiley Online Library | antibiotics in food producing animals | Scoop.it

The article describes the use of the DairyCo Mastitis plan in the investigation of high mastitis incidence in a dairy herd. The DairyCo mastitis plan uses software to analyse the herd's mastitis and cell count data in order to enable the mastitis problem to be categorised as predominantly dry period origin or lactation period origin and either environmental or contagious origin. A thorough farm visit and completion of a questionnaire will then allow areas for improvement to be selected which will be most likely to have the greatest benefit in reducing mastitis incidence in the herd in question.

Aressa Silva's curator insight, March 14, 2014 12:27 PM

In the Netherlands, the chairman of the sheep farmers at LTO Dutch Federation of Agriculture and Horticulture believe in using medication on their animals but only ones that are approved by their vets. They believe that working close with their vets will ensure the responsible use of the medications on their animals. Their main goal is to make healthy animals to ensure their children will be healthy eating this meat. They believe that having their own children eat their products proves that they are very responsible in the way that their animals are raised and medicated. They ensure that they have all of the records of the medication kept on computers and hard copy, and they only buy the medications from their most trusted veterinaries. They create very specific instructions for their employees on how to use the medication to ensure that the medication is all used in the same way on every animal and that they all have the same registration. They have a very professional relationship with their veterinary. They call the veterinary often to reflect on the usage of their medications to make sure that the animals will not be unhealthy for their children. They have great communication with their veterinaries and converse often about how to improve their system of using medication and their business in general.
