October 16, 2018 @ 9:30 am - October 17, 2018 @ 2:30 pm
Mastitis problems in your herd?
Mastitis and milk quality affect the bottom line of all dairy farms. Dairy Australia estimates that every case of clinical mastitis costs at least $270 in treatment costs and lost milk.
Cups On Cups Off is a two-day training course designed by Dairy Australia and delivered by Countdown 2020 trained experts in mastitis and milk quality. Cups On Cups Off helps dairy farmers achieve best practice in milk harvesting, with the emphasis on the detection, treatment and prevention of clinical mastitis.
Cups On Cups Off covers the whole milking process including mastitis management and the roles of people in the dairy. The course is suitable for anyone on a dairy farm who milks cows – from farm owners, managers and share farmers to family members and farm employees. This training has already helped many dairy farmers to reduce the spread of mastitis and lower the risk of clinical cases of mastitis in their herds.
how and why mastitis infections occur
practical methods to detect and deal with mastitis
adapting your milking process to reduce the risk of infections
how to develop an action plan to achieve best practice in milk harvesting
The course will run 9.30am – 2.30pm both days. Morning tea and lunch will be provided.
This course is being supported by Dairy Australia and there is no cost associated with attending. The course is currently being delivered as an extension activity and as such there is no longer a requirement to enrol through a training organisation.
