How can this course help you?

A great dairy farm is built with great animals. Building your farm is a step by step process and involves careful selection and replacement of animals over the years. While you must have your own breeding policy to create a herd of animals which are born on your farm, you must at times purchase dairy animals from outside to maintain milk yield or increase milk production.

Many dairy farmers approach us with the problem that when they went to purchase, the animal produced over 15 litres of milk and when they brought the animal to their farm, she produced only 5 litres of milk. This course will equip you with scientific techniques that you help you avoid such pitfalls in dairy farming.

Once you have bought the animals it is important to ensure that they travel safely to your dairy farm without any injuries . They must also reach your dairy farm without contracting infectious diseases on the way. You will learn how to transport animals and from where to buy animals.

This course will help you in learning critical techniques that will assist you to quickly understand whether your dairy animals have any health issues. Not only while buying animals for your dairy farm, but also in your day to day farm operations, this course will help you in keeping diseases away. You just need to follow scientific dairy farming procedures.
