Troubleshooting weaned heifers

Other Titles
Abstract

Post weaned heifers are the foundation of the milking herd. Taking the time to troubleshoot heifer management pays the farm back in profitability. “How well you do in the heifer-rearing phase will pay you back later on. Really good milk producing cows start with the calves. The post weaning phase is where we tend to lose track of them. We can tend to lose ground. The hardest part is getting them weaned. If we have been successful up to that point, with just a little more management, we can get them through this next period,” said Rob Lynch, DVM, Cornell PRO-DAIRY, during an episode on approaches to evaluating a post weaned heifer management program in the PRO-DAIRY podcast series Troubleshooting Herd Health Issues on Your Dairy.
