High Yielders welcome veterinary consultant to recent meeting

High Yielders: We were very pleased to welcome James Husband from the Evidence Based Veterinary Consultancy to join us for  a meeting of our high yielders club to discuss managing Milk Fever. We discussed the importance of identifying whether sub clinical milk fever plays a part on your farm and the detrimental effects this would have. Following this the discussion focused around the formulation of dry cow diets and which nutritional products have what impact on DCAB. Some of the group also use Calcium Binders in their dry cow diet and the role of these was discussed along with how this allows for a less traditional dry cow ration. We look forward to our next high yielders meeting in September focusing on mastitis and milking routine.


I have no doubt that their expert knowledge and gentle care meant that our cow survived.
