The Milking and Mastitis Management program is available in a fully online format that is available to start at any stage and can be worked through at a pace that suits you.
This program can assist those new to milking or work as a refresher for those who have milked before by working through an online program with an on-farm coach.
Milking and Mastitis Management takes participants through five modules to learn the fundamentals of effective, low-stress milking. Topics covered include:
- Bringing the cows into the dairy;
- Putting cups on;
- Taking cups off;
- Post-milking teat disinfection; and,
- Detecting clinical mastitis.
For each module, participants will complete training through Dairy Australia's online learning platform, Enlight, followed by a series of on-farm tasks with an on-farm coach from the business.
If you are registering for multiple students, please submit this form separately for each student.
