How do I know if my stock are protected?
Recent work by Dr Emma Cuttance, (a vet based in Te Awamutu),
funded by Dairy NZ, has shown that many dairy cows being
treated with zinc are failing to achieve protective levels of zinc in
the blood stream. In her study, only 28% of cows from 106 farms
had adequate levels. The graph below shows the results, with the
protective level marked by the red dotted lines.
Historical trends- (source Assure-Quality)
In this study, only farms that were drenching stock with zinc, As can be seen on the above graph, spore counts are well above providing zinc oxide on feed or a combination of zinc on feed and challenge levels already, (week 7 is the 29th of February) and in water achieved protective levels.

What do you want from your dry cow?
As the summer rolls on, you are probably starting to think about drying off some of your cows. The vast majority of farmers now use whole-herd dry-cow therapy as an integral part of their mastitis-control strategy. However, like all things in the current Teatseal is a non-antibiotic inert substance economic environment, it is often useful to review farm practices that forms a plug in the teat canal, and re-evaluate why we do things and what we are trying to preventing mastitis throughout the entire dry period and at calving.
