GDF WEBINAR | SELECTION OF COWS FOR ANTIBIOTIC TREATMENT AT DRY OFF
SELECTIVE DRY COW THERAPY
Presented by Jantijn Swinkels, MSD Animal Health

Blanket dry cow treatment has been a cornerstone for mastitis control for many decades, and has contributed to a significant reduction in intramammary infections. This reduction has, over time, resulted in antibiotics at drying off being mainly used in healthy uninfected quarters to prevent new infections, rather than for treating existing infection. Increased public health concern about the prophylactic use of antibiotics, and the introduction of teat sealants as effective alternatives to prevent new infections, paved the way for selection of cows for antibiotic treatment at dry off (selective dry cow treatment). Selective dry cow treatment is well supported in the scientific literature and is therefore increasingly implemented in dairy herds. The presentation discusses the why, who and how to implement this approach on your farm.
