Do you have an attitude of excellence?

Dairy scientists at the University of Kentucky interviewed managers of top-producing herds in the state to characterize their management practices. Producers were asked to identify the one management practice that contributed the most to their milk production level. The most frequently cited reasons were (1) attention to detail, (2) nutrition, (3) cow comfort, and (4) quality forages.

“The response of ‘attention to detail’ demonstrates the importance of management ability in attaining high milk production,” say the researchers. “Obviously, this trait is difficult to quantify, but demonstrates that an attitude of excellence contributes to high milk yield.”
