Out In the Field - Reality Gives Perspective

Kajal and I would like to extend a sincere thanks to Cudlobe Farms for allowing us to visit their operation last week. With the development of our new teat, udder, feet and leg project, we were able to test and revise our standard operating procedures. After creating our scoring charts and guidelines within the office, it was important to put them into practice in the field.

Our visit to Cudlobe allowed us to determine which traits were viable to score, and where there was room for improvement in our methods. Since then, we have improved our guidelines so they are more subjective. We are now almost ready to begin collecting data for the project.

We would like to extend a thank you to all of the producers that have agreed to participate in this project. If you have any questions, or would like to get involved, do not hesitate to contact me at any time.
