Abstract

Mastitis remains the most expensive disease of dairy cows, and antibiotic dry cow therapy (DCT) at dry-off is an important part of mastitis control. Regardless of the infection status, blanket DCT is administered to all quarters of all cows, which is controversial due to the worldwide problem of...

Abstract

Selective dry-cow therapy (SDCT) could be used to reduce antibiotic use on commercial dairy farms in the United States but is not yet widely adopted, possibly due to concerns about the potential for negative effects on cow health. The objective of this study was to compare culture- and...

Abstract

In 2013, the preventive use of antimicrobials in Dutch livestock was prohibited, including a ban on the blanket application of antimicrobial dry cow treatment (BDCT). Since then, selective dry cow treatment (SDCT) has become the standard approach. In this study, we aimed to determine the effect of...

Abstract

Shortening or omitting the dry period to improve the energy balance in early lactation have the trade-offs of reduction in milk production and loss of opportunity for dry-cow therapy (DCT; i.e., intramammary antibiotic use at dry-off). Customized dry-period strategies (i.e., deciding upon DCT and ...

Abstract

Objective: Is use of dry cow therapy, teat sealant, or dry cow therapy + teat sealant more effective in controlling heifer mastitis and decreasing SCC than no treatment? Materials and Methods: At 2 mo prepartum, 304 mammary quarters of 76 pregnant Holstein heifers were randomly assigned to (1) dry ...

Abstract

Antimicrobial use in livestock production is a controversial subject. While antimicrobials should be used as little as possible, it is still necessary, from both an animal health and welfare point of view, to treat infected animals. The study presented here aimed to analyse antimicrobial use on...

Abstract

The objectives of this study were: (1) to determine the operating characteristics of a commercial milk leukocyte differential (MLD) test to detect intramammary infections in quarters of late-lactation dairy cows as compared to bacteriological culture and (2) to evaluate the milk production and...

Abstract

Lactating cows are routinely treated at dry-off with antibiotic infusions in each quarter for the cure and prevention of pathogenic intramammary infection, which remains the most common disease in dairy herds. This approach is known as blanket dry-cow therapy, usually effective for the prevention...

Abstract

Advice regarding the management and importance of the dry cow environment can be difficult to offer in many dairy herds for several reasons. These may include a perception that dry cow therapy (both internal teat sealant and antibiotic) is extremely effective at preventing infection, a lack of milk ...

Abstract

The cessation of milking at the end of lactation is a routine management practice in dairy herds, and the importance of the dry period for milk production and udder health, has long been recognized. Among countries and herds, drying-off practices differ and include various milk cessation methods,...
