Why is the dry cow period important?
In the first video of our udder health video series, Tommy Heffernan and Helena Madden delve into the rationale behind drying-off cows. The pair also discuss what happens during the dry cow period? What are we trying to achieve? And what are the greatest risks during the drying-off procedure? Finally, Tommy and Helena thrash out what needs to be taken into consideration when deciding to go down the selective dry cow therapy (SDCT) route on your farm.
