The economic impact of mastitis on the dairy industry is nearly $2 billion or 11 percent of total U.S. milk production. Educating dairy employees about this issue is an important part of minimizing loss and reducing the risk of infection. To support dairies in their efforts to educate employees, Merial is pleased to announce the addition of a new Web-based audiovisual training module, Mastitis Control, at www.BestInClassDairies.com. A third module, Dairy as a Profit Center, as well as new educational resources, links to industry news and dairy market statistics are also featured on the new enhanced site, giving dairy operations even more tools to be successful. Each module is available in both English and Spanish. Workers can access the modules at any time, which allows them the opportunity to read and review the information at their own pace. The quiz that follows the video keeps the employee engaged and helps ensure an accurate understanding of the training information. For those employees who prefer to listen to the information and quiz questions, a new text-to-audio function has been added (Spanish version only).
