  • Simple Steps Save Calves
    Without intervention, 40% of calves that need more than minor assistance at birth will die.
  • Control Coccidiosis
    Clean, dry, well-ventilated pens and adequate nutrition are crucial to coccidiosis prevention and control.
  • Management by Numbers
    It is critical to know your costs beyond feed expense to effectively manage margins.
  • See Her, Breed Her
    There is more risk to breeding a cow too late, by waiting 12 hours using the AM/PM rule, than breeding once per day.
  • Polled Potential
    Dehorning cows riles animal rights activists, but breeding with polled genetics could transform the dairy industry.

    More of the state's dairies are diversifying into permanent crops like almonds.


  • Is Organic Milk Better?
    While grass-fed milk has a better ratio of fatty acids, the levels are still so low they don’t make much difference in human nutrition.
