Protocol compliance and milk quality require teamwork
Protocol compliance is necessary for ensuring milk quality, preventing milk or meat residue violations and protecting your dairy’s bottom line. Assuring a safe and quality milk supply requires collaboration among on-farm teams. Dairies not only need protocols but also need to communicate them and make sure employees are following them. Type up protocols, train your employees regarding the facts behind why and how the protocol is important, print them out and post them in locations throughout the dairy, especially in the hospital area and milking parlor.
