Pasteurize waste milk

Far too many of you are putting your calves at risk for disease by not pasteurizing waste milk. According to a USDA study, waste milk is fed to calves on 87 percent of dairy operations. However, it is pasteurized prior to feeding on only 1 percent of those operations. If you want to stop the vertical transmission of disease, you must pasteurize waste milk, or feed milk replacer.

This disturbing finding was reported in Part I of the “Dairy 2002” study released earlier this year by the USDA’s National Animal Health Monitoring System. To read the entire study, see the Web site: http://www.aphis.usda.gov/vs/ceah/cahm/Dairy_Cattle/dairy.htm

Once there, click on “Part I: Reference of Dairy Health and Management in the United States, 2002.”
