CellCheck Newsletter March

Welcome to the March edition of the CellCheck newsletter.  Our guest contributor this month, Matt O'Keeffe shares his thoughts on the gains to be made from milk recording, and argues a case for mandatory milk recording of all cows to future-proof the national dairy industry.  Continuing this theme, the Tip of the Month in this issue looks at how you can use the results from the milk recording to assess the dry period performance, in terms of udder health.  Did the infected animals cure?  Were new infections prevented?  Are there areas that could be improved on in the future?  Of course, an early milk recording is essential to be able to answer these questions, so don't delay, start milk recording today!  Our featured research paper looks in greater detail at using clinical mastitis records and milk recording results to assess dry period performance.
