ACS Webinar: Monitoring Milk on the Farm
June 24, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm MDT
Monitoring Milk on the Farm
Wednesday, June 24 – 2:00 p.m. MT
Excellent milk quality means milk that is free from bacterial contamination and antibiotics. Presenter, Joe Klopfenstein, DVM DABVP, will discuss strategies to improve milk quality, cheese quality, and animal health and welfare. While in dairy practice in Vermont for over 25 years Joe worked with many innovative cheese producers on improving and monitoring their milk quality. He developed some strategies for monitoring milk quality that would translate to the farm or vet practice level. This included monitoring for somatic cell count, bacteria count, Staph counts and Staph aureus surveillance, mastitis culture and treatment selection. These strategies apply to both cattle and goats.
