Mastitis management starts with a good plan, and above all, solid understanding of the current situation on the farm. A mastitis tool can help gain these insights and lower the mastitis incidence in the dairy herd.

 

"Awareness is the greatest agent for change," the famous spiritual teacher and writer Eckhart Tolle said. And whether it is about life philosophy, or mastitis management, the idea is the same. 

 

 

Awareness is to have the knowledge or discernment of a situation.
