Selective Dry Cow Management

The typical method for preventing new infections and treatment of intra-mammary infections during the dry period has historically been the blanket use of Dry Cow Therapy. With the rise of antimicrobial resistance in human as well as veterinary medicine, this prophylactic use of antibiotics (ABs) is now considered unnecessary, as many cows in the herd will be treated with ABs when they don’t need it.

This increased pressure to reduce the use of ABs without impacting on health and welfare has led to new Dairy Sector Targets to reduce the use of Dry Cow AB Tubes and increase the use of Teat Sealants, (see below). Kingshay’s Antimicrobial Report (in Health Manager) will help you monitor these criteria.
