Improving Immunity Farming Note

Kingshay Dairy Costings show that 40% of cows culled were as a direct result of health factors. This represents a significant avoidable loss, whilst health issues can also lead to other issues e.g. lameness will decrease time stood up at the feed barrier, reducing milk yield and body condition. Improving immunity in your herd and consequently the longevity, will result in healthier cows, lower vet bills and greater profits.

This Farming Note covers:

  • Types of immunity
  • Reducing the disease challenge
  • The importance of a good start in life
  • Nutrition
  • Stressed cows

Issued February 2013.
