VAS DC305 Tip of the Month – Parlor Performance
Using the Parlor Performance Reports in DC305 can help you take advantage of many of the benefits of daily milk meters plus look for cows that fail to produce the expected amount of milk.


VAS DC305 Tip of the Month - Clinical Mastitis
Clinical mastitis is a very costly disease. Although poor milk procedures, dirty environments and faulty equipment can predispose cows, most mastitis is caused by an infectious agent. Treatment of mastitis (MAST event in DC305) caused by certain bacteria is not improved by antibiotic therapy, so not treating those cows will decrease antibiotic use, decrease hospital days and decrease milk withheld from sale. 


VAS DC305 Tip of the Month – Transition
How well animals transition will greatly affect how they will do in their next lactation. Poor transition will not only effect the production of the animal for the next lactation but will also effect the reproduction, somatic cell count and lifetime in the herd. All are very important and lead to lost income.
