Selective dry cow therapy – decision making process

6 February 2018

The EuroDairy project pursues considered and responsible use of antimicrobials, consistent with high standards of animal health and welfare. Using a case study approach, the thought process and decision making steps involved in selective dry cow therapy are described, the farmer working closely with his veterinary surgeon. This case study is based on a high yielding UK herd of 750 cows, milking three times a day!
