TalkStraight has proved hugely successful in the past and is now in its third year running. This year we decided to make it bigger and better by increasing the number of farmer articles and making them more relevant to you by producing a North and a South Island edition.
In this year’s TalkStraight editions, you might be surprised how much extra income you could gain:
• By reducing cell counts even further.
• And by lessening the overall impact of mastitis on your farm.
The most well known costs of mastitis relate to milk quality, treatment of clinical cases, and culling and deaths. But mastitis can also impact your staff, animals, calving, season length and management options – which can have a significant impact on your profitability.
You’ll also find advice on how to make the most of your milk quality consultation and the differences between, and instructions for, partial and full syringe insertion. There are many more stories from farmers about dry off, vets from your area talking about issues relevant to you, and a Dairy Womens Network update for each edition.
The TalkStraight Newspaper will be distributed to you in the post.
