Let’s Talk Dairy Bonus Episode: Milk Recording Reports

Teagasc is running a weekly Let's Talk Dairy webinar series which is also being made available as a bonus podcast episode. In this webinar, Stuart Childs, Teagasc Dairy Specialist discusses milk recording reports and the importance it has to farmers. Milk recording is important to identify superior cows who are producing high levels of solids and also to identify the most productive cows which can then be beneficial from an environmental and economic point of view. Generally, milk recording is an under-utilised tool at the moment. There has been a big increase in milk recording figures in relation to the 2019 figures with 2020 not being reviewed as much because of the impact of COVID-19. There's also been a big impact of milk recording in the Progressive area and in the Munster catchment area as well. Stuart also explains how to use the information acquired from the milk recording figures.
