Dry Cow Management for a Successful Lactation Webinar Series
May 28, June 4, and June 11
The transition from late gestation to early lactation is challenging for both animals and dairy producers, and is an important phase of a cow’s lactation and production cycle. Closely managing cows during this time is crucial to making sure the transition goes smoothly for a successful lactation. The cow and her udder prepare for the next lactation during the dry period. Putting in place management strategies that make sure cows are not producing high yields of milk when dried off along with providing proper environmental and nutritional management, appropriate dry cow therapy, and teat sealant become very important for the herd. Cows need to remain healthy and well cared for during this transition period.
