Milking and Mastitis Management (MMM) is a new course that has been developed to replace Dairy Australia's highly regarded Cups On Cups Off Course. It features updated course content and is divided into a theory day (Tuesday 1st February) in the classroom, followed by a practical day (Wednesday 2nd February) conducted on farm. Participants must be available to attend both days.
MMM is suitable for new milking staff or as a refresher for existing staff and managers. Overall goals of the course are to:
Explore best practice with milk harvesting
Through discussion, prioritise what you, as an individual can do to improve milk harvesting and mastitis control, and also what the farm team can do
Develop an action plan based on these priorities.
Milk Quality expert Mark Humphris (The Milk Road) will deliver this course in Candelo. This is the pilot for MMM and you will be asked to provide feedback on its content and delivery.
