Which one of your cows is sick?
An average size dairy producer in Ontario loses $14K worth of milk per year.
Animal health is a major driver of productivity in the dairy sector.
By the time, cows are showing signs of illness on visual inspection or milk production has dropped, the condition has often progressed to the point that requires time-consuming and costly treatment.
Once a cow is sick, the lactation curve rarely goes back to its previous level.
Unfortunately, in 99% of cases where the lactation curve has fallen due to an illness, the milk yield never returns to the prior level resulting in a permanent loss of production. How can you identify a sick cow before her milk production drops?
