    Indiana has more than 50,000 livestock sites in its premise ID data base, including more than 1,500 dairy operations.
  • The Next Generation

  • A Second Set of Eyes
    Security cameras help dairies know what cows, employees and visitors are up to
  • Johne’s Lessons Learned
    Pasteurizing waste milk and vaccination help control Johne’s disease.
