Mastitis Prevention Roadshow

New Zealand
July 5th to July 22nd at a Farm Source store near you

Hear from mastitis expert and award-winning microbiologist, Natasha Maguire, about improving on-farm profitability through lowering Somatic Cell Count (SCC) and reducing antibiotic usage.

Our objective is to help you achieve your goals by sharing our Mastitis Prevention & Reduction experience and best practices we honed over years working in the field.

The sessions will cover:

•          Review of SCC limitations to manage animal health.
•          The different mastitis-causing pathogens, including Staph aureus.
•          Why E. coli is more common than first thought.
•          Methods to significantly reduce your mastitis costs (including yield reduction and milk loss, culling, and treatments).
•          Useful, best practice tips for drying off and calving.

Each event will be hosted at selected Farm Source stores and will consist of a Farm Medix presentation, followed by light refreshments, and then a farmer discussion.

The format will be casual and conversational so everyone can ask questions and share their experiences.

We hope to see you soon!
