• The Silver Model is designed for rapid cooling of colostrum to slow the growth of bacteria before the product is stored in the refrigerator or freezer. The Silver Model is also designed to efficiently and safely thaw and warm colostrum so that calves are fed the proper volumes in an appropriate amount of time. The active warming is 4X faster than traditional methods that put the delicate Ig proteins at significant risk.
• The Gold Model takes these advantages a step further by incorporating sophisticated control options that permit colostrums pasteurization as well. Colostrum must be managed using the Perfect Udder colostrum bags that enable for pasteurization, storage, reheating and feeding all from the same container.

Heifer Genomics Guide
Dairy Records Management Systems introduces the Heifer Genomics Guide.
Genomics, genomic evaluation, genomics technology…Peruse any dairy publication and you are bound to see these buzz words. Our industry is on the genomics fast track. Dairy producers are testing heifers at an ever-increasing rate. University and industry researchers are touting the benefits of using genomics as an evaluation tool.
Now the question is: What to do with all of this genomic data?
Dairy Records Management Systems has the answer. The Heifer Genomics Guide (DHI-428) is now available to all dairy producer clients on DHIA test who genotype. Genomics results flow from UDSA-AIPL to DRMS and are merged with relevant management information. The result is the Heifer Genomics Guide.
To get the greatest benefit from genomics, tools such as the Heifer Genomics Guide are becoming increasingly important. The Guide enables producers to make informed decisions about their heifers from a genomics perspective and will help elevate the value of genetics in U.S. dairy herds.

SHREDLAGE L.L.C. introduces Shredlage™.
Shredlage is a new, patent pending and revolutionary technology to process corn and/or sorghum silage that replaces a conventional kernel processer. It allows for a much longer particle length — 30 MM vs. 19 MM for conventional silage — annihilates corn kernels and shreds the plant vertically which increases microbial surface area and improves effective fiber without sorting. And, because of the particle configuration, Shredlage packs better for improved oxygen removal that results in better silage fermentation.
