What is a good way to handle fresh cows?
Fresh cows set the pace for the entire herd, and the first 60 days post-calving define a cow’s lactation. So in order for the herd to hit its production goals, the fresh cow program must be fine-tuned. Utilize technology to increase production for fresh cows. This has become an area of stagnation for many operations because they define success in transition only as a function of number of metabolics recorded. Redefine success and ask the questions, “How much milk are we leaving on the table with our current strategy?” and “What is truly possible?”
Determine how to remove the barriers to achieving more than 30,000 pounds of milk, and then redefine what success looks like for your operation.
