Implementing selective dry cow therapy


Join us for this webinar to learn why implementing a selective approach to antibiotic dry cow therapy (SDCT) is important for your herd.

Using UK research, you will find out how SDCT benefits udder health, reduces antibiotic usage, costs and the risk of antibiotic milk tank failures. With continued pressure on the dairy industry to take a rational approach to the use of on-farm antibiotics, SDCT is a vital concept to put in place.

Vet James Breen will share how and why SDCT has been used by strategic dairy farmers Joe Carter and Andrew Thomas.

This session is ideally suited to those who have not started SDCT, are unsure about cow selection or infusion technique or would like to hear about the benefits.

In this session you will learn about:

  • The barriers that farmers have about using SDCT
  • How to safely implement an SDCT protocol
  • How to use data to drive decisions
  • Tips and hints to minimise risk of new infections during the dry period
