New concepts in mastitis control is the topic of next Hoard's Dairyman webinar.
Pam Ruegg, D.V.M., University of Wisconsin-Madison's milk quality specialist, will discuss "New concepts in mastitis control" for the September webinar. It will start at noon on Monday, Sept. 9, and lasts one hour.
The production of high quality milk is based on prevention of mastitis and early detection of new infections. This webinar will help producer and advisers understand some of the new technologies that are being used for detection and diagnosis of mastitis.
