How much do you spend on a sick cow in your herd? What could you gain by reducing the days wasted on treatment, zero production and vet bills?
Organic dairy farming is a growing trend around the world—especially in the West. If you've already joined the movement, you've experienced the potential of a more sustainable lifestyle and higher milk prices.
But if you want organic farming to be successful, it calls for a healthy herd. Sick organic cows are often more time consuming and costly to treat because they need to be taken out of production for more days. Depending on where you live, you may also face restrictions on the use of antibiotics.
Do your cows spend a lot of time grazing and exercising outdoor? Then hoof health, udder health and resilience becomes even more important. You want cows that live long and last long, making your business healthy, sustainable and profitable.
