Use data in the milk recording reports to take action and avoid the spread of infection.

In this video, Munster Bovine vet, Dennis Howard discusses the interpretation of milk recording reports and outlines what action herd owners can take to manage high cell count cows.

By using antibiotics responsibly to treat cows that have the best chance of being cured now, herdowners can avoid these animals becoming chronically infected, Munster Bovine said in a post on social media.

Advice

“Talk to your vet, try to identify the cows that can be cured and take action because this is the time of year when mastitis is spreading; you want to put controls in place to stop the spread,” Howard explained.

“By curing cows, hopefully, you are stopping the spread and avoiding those cows becoming chronic.”

Concluding the vet said: “Take action on your reports, treat the correct cows and use the antibiotics as responsibly as we can.”
