A practical guide to first-rate udder health
Relatively larger herds require a more standardised approach for udder health management. This book digs deeper into the subject than the basic edition. More attention is paid to standard operating procedures, since the farmer often works with personnel. Also, extra pages about immunology of the udder are added.
Udder Health contains the building blocks for ideal organisation of housing, care and management. It follows the farmer through his daily/weekly/monthly routines, since udder health should not be regarded as separate from other activities on the farm. Do you know how to organise milking so that it takes the minimum of time and runs smoothly with each cow?
Its practical text, challenging puzzles and clear photos and illustrations make Udder Health an accessible and interesting guide for every dairy farmer. You'll find yourself turning to Udder Health time and again. The practical advice it offers will help you improve the understanding of udder health on your farm and achieve higher standards. Collaboration with the Netherlands Udder Health Centre (UGCN) allows this practical guide to incorporate the latest findings of the Dutch Long-Term Plan for Udder Health.
