Fresh Cow Protocols Farming Note

The post-calving period is a difficult time for a cow who has to recover from the stress of calving, fight off disease and infection and produce milk. Having an effective fresh cow management program that all staff follow is key to success during this period. Protocols are a valuable tool in all herds but are especially appropriate for larger teams or ones with alternating relief staff to ensure consistency with fresh cow care.

This Farming Note covers:

  • The benefits of a good fresh cow management program
  • Getting the most out of a protocol
  • Common postpartum issues
  • Examples of a fresh cow protocol

Issued June 2013.
