Technology within your training system
No Access Until
Odds are if I asked about technology and regulations in place on your dairy you'd tell me there are significantly more of both today than 20 years ago. I would also guess you're more interested in one than the other! Many states, and countries, are seeing rapid changes in environmental, labor, and animal care regulations. Along with these changes come new training requirements for employees to stay up to date and in compliance. The FARM program's current version 4.0, for example, brought about annually required training in the areas of euthanasia, calf care, stockmanship, fitness for transport, and non-ambulatory cattle handling. Along with meeting regulatory requirements, effective employee training is essential to stay competitive in today's dairy industry, where labor is short and margins are tight.
