Dairy Herd Management

Dairy Herd Management

MSU Extension works with dairy producers on farms and in classrooms and workshops to identify problems, implement research-based practices and explore alternative production practices. Extension educators help producers develop goals and standards for their operations and methods of evaluating employee management and performance. The Dairy Production webpage has many resources to help dairy producers. Specific dairy educational opportunities include:

•  Calf care schools

•  Dairy animal health

•  Dairy cow nutrition and feeding

•  Dairy genetic selection tools

•  Reproductive management of dairy cattle

•  Spartan III Ration Evaluator and Balancer
