Transition Cow Management

The dry period is a critical time, which sets up a dairy cow up for its next lactation. It can also be a high-risk time for intramammary infections, with 60% of mastitis cases linked to this time.

Farmers Weekly’s Transition Cow Management course aims to equip farmers with the know-how to prevent any potential problems throughout the dry period.
