Countdown 2020 Farm Guidelines - 2016

Practical advice on mastitis control

The Countdown 2020 Farm Guidelines are an essential resource for everyone who milks cows, providing advice on all aspects of mastitis control and milk quality. The guidelines cover best practices at each stage of the cow’s lactation.

The Farm Guidelines have recently undergone a major revision to include new information, integrate with the new Countdown Mastitis Toolkit App and support the revised “Cups On Cups Off” course offered by the NCDE.
