Successful Transition Cow Program Could Save Iowa Farmers $1.2 Million

Dairy producers throughout Iowa were able to re-evaluate best management practices for their transition cow program. Project Director Jennifer Bentley notes that while transition cow management encompasses only 20-30 percent of a herd, it ultimately influences the milk production and health of 100 percent of the cows.

Six hundred producers took part of online training to increase awareness of risk management and best practices for dairy cattle.
