Results from a Wisconsin field study of 1,500 cows indicated that more than half the cows were at risk of being unknowingly under- or overdosed for health treatments. This means appearances can be deceiving and you should stop eyeballing body weight to determine treatment dosage. The costs of guessing body weight can add up when you consider potential reduced efficacy, additional treatments and labor costs. Listen to Dr. Richard Wallace, senior managing veterinarian with Zoetis Dairy Technical Services, as he discusses study results and provides tips for capturing body weights on your dairy cows.
