HARRISBURG, Pa. — The Center for Dairy Excellence has released a series of case studies focused on animal welfare and herd health standard operating procedures.

This report offers a look into how standard operating procedures improved herd health care on nine Pennsylvania dairy farms and was made possible through a grant from the Pennsylvania Soybean Board.

The case study report shares key findings from a “Dairy Animal Welfare and Herd Health Care” project that the Center for Dairy Excellence initiated in 2011 to help nine participating farms address a cow care bottleneck.

The nine farms received a $1,000 grant from the center to work with their herd veterinarian and others in a team environment to create standard operating procedures to resolve the bottleneck.

To view the report, visit www.centerfordairyexcellence.org and click on “Business Tools.” Then look under the “Dairy Farm Case Studies” section for Herd Health Care.
