Details

Mastitis and milk quality affect the bottom line of all dairy farms. Dairy Australia estimates that every case of clinical mastitis costs at least $270 in treatment costs and lost milk.

Cups on Cups off is a two-day training course designed by Dairy Australia and delivered by Dairy Australia’s education partners and Countdown trained experts in mastitis and milk quality. Cups on Cups off helps dairy farmers achieve best practice in milk harvesting, with the emphasis on the detection, treatment and prevention of clinical mastitis.

Cups on Cups off covers the whole of the milking process including mastitis management and the roles of people in the dairy. The course is suitable for anyone on a dairy farm who milks cows - from farm owners, managers and sharefarmers - to family members and farm employees.

This training has already helped many dairy farmers to reduce the spread of mastitis and lower the risk of clinical cases of mastitis in their herds.
