CELLCHECK NEWSLETTER AUGUST EDITION 2016

NEWS

FINOLA McCOY, PROGRAMME MANAGER

WELCOME to this month’s edition of the CellCheck newsletter. This month’s top tip is a reminder to change liners after 2,000 milkings or 6 months (whichever comes first!), while our guest contributor this month, Tom Ryan from Teagasc, explains how good housing design can reduce the risk of mastitis in herds. He has some great advice and reminders about the things we need to consider to make sure cows are clean, dry and comfortable when indoors. In other news, the DAFM registration phase for KT participants is now closed, and group facilitators are currently scheduling provisional dates for the CellCheck Farmer Workshops for their KT discussion groups over the next 18 months, via the AHI online system. We also welcome Sinead Treanor of Carbery back to the team of CellCheck Regional Coordinators!
