Plan for winter dairy udder health now This week's sudden shift in the weather is a stark reminder that dairy producers need to plan ahead to maintain udder health during the winter, says J.W. Schroeder, North Dakota State University Extension Service dairy specialist. "Winter teat-end lesions are easily triggered when the temperature drops 20 degrees," he adds. "With inevitable cold winter weather on its way, the advent of teat-end lesions is likely to predispose cows to mastitis." Wind chills and temperature changes are the major factors leading to winter teat challenges. Schroeder says the dairy manager's objectives should be to: • Control exposure to weather factors as much as possible. • Minimize other teat stressors that exacerbate the problem if cracking or freezing occurs. • Keep the teat disinfected, healthy and soft as much as possible through proper milking procedures. • Minimize secondary bacterial infections through proper milking practices and environmental sanitation. "We can't control the weather, but we can control factors that will ensure cow comfort and the cows' udder health in the coming weeks," he says. Here are ways he suggests producers accomplish those objectives: • Control cold temperature exposure by providing windbreaks if animals have to go outside, feeding and housing cows indoors during cold weather when possible, avoiding drafts in buildings by keeping ventilation and openings controlled properly, and avoiding putting animals directly into extreme wind chills post-milking. • Control stall/bedding environment by having comfortable, dry areas for animals, providing dry bedding, and maintaining and changing bedding at appropriate intervals. Recent research in Minnesota showed that bedding maintenance is critical to reducing bacterial exposure. • Maintain milking equipment by checking vacuum and milk line hoses, pulsators, inations and vacuum level; keeping pulsators clean; and changing inations on schedule. • Ensure pre-milking sanitation by using procedures that maximize teat disinfection and skin conditioning while minimizing irritation or trauma. Also, pre-dip with a good germicidal dip with skin conditioner, blot teats dry instead of rubbing to minimize irritation on problem teats, and use milking hygiene practices like those used to control contagious mastitis (clean hands, gloves and individual towels). Cloth towels are best because they dry teats more thoroughly with less abrasion than other types of towels. • Review people/milking machine/time interactions because using proper

techniques is imperative to maximize unit performance (maximum ow/unit time) and minimize teat stress (extended milking due to low ow rates or gross overmilking). "Remember that teat-end changes can occur rapidly in winter with dehydration and cracking, and at other times with acute machine problems," Schroeder says. "Minimizing the weather effects through proper facilities and environments is job one. Some practices may need to be altered or adapted during cold weather (dipping, blotting, etc.), and the advantages and disadvantages should be carefully examined when evaluating using new technologies or products such as teat dips." To date, researchers have found no protocol that stops cracked teats completely during the winter. NDSU Agriculture Communication

As the corn and soybean harvest season begins to wrap-up in Minnesota, many producers' plans are turning next to the 2013 crop. One area of discussion which will be evaluated is the application of nitrogen for the 2013 corn crop. Soil temperatures are still averaging above 60 degrees as of Oct 1 but will trend downward in October with the arrival of cooler air temperatures later in October. The University of Minnesota Lamberton Outreach Center’s website at WeatherInformation/index.htm lists daily soil temperatures at three depths in the soil. In addition, the Minnesota Dept. of Agriculture’s website at https:// soiltemp.aspx contains an interactive map which lists the six inch soil temperature at varying locations across Minnesota. This is good information to help producers make nitrogen application decisions as listed below. Dr. John Lamb, University of Minnesota Extension Soils Specialist, provides the following guidelines for nitrogen applications in central and western Minnesota: Nitrogen is a mobile nutrient and therefore must be managed differently to get the most nutrient value and the least amount of loss to the environment. In the south central part of Minnesota, application of fall N is not always the most efcient management option. If your operation requires you to apply some N in the fall, there are some things you can do to get the most N out of the fertilizer application. First, do not apply nitrogen fertilizer before the soil temperature at the six inch depth is consistently below 50 degrees. Second, use only an ammonium form of nitrogen. Anhydrous ammonia would be the preferred, followed by urea. If you have a eld that is consistently wet, you may want to consider the use of a nitrication inhibitor to slow the conversion of ammonium to nitrate. The use of the inhibitor is not a way to allow for application before the soil temperatures are below 50 degrees. If you farm sandy ground, N applied in the fall will not be in the soil when spring arrives. Fall N application on sandy soil, irrigated or not, is a total waste of time and money and presents large risks of groundwater pollution. In the southwest, west central, and northwestern parts of Minnesota, fall applications of ammonia based N sources is OK if the soil temperature is less than 50 degrees. At the time of writing this, Minnesota agricultural areas were experiencing drought at one degree or another. The ground is hard - maybe harder than last year. With this in mind, a late fall application of N after we receive some rain may be the best fall option. It will reduce the chances of loss by getting a better soil cover of the ammonia band and also save on the wear and tear of the tillage and application equipment. If you use urea, it must be incorporated to keep it from volatilizing. Dry soils are good candidates for urea volatilization to occur. Research with fall N applications has shown that anhydrous ammonia will have a lower loss of nitrogen than urea. Also with the dry summer, it is strongly suggested that you take a soil nitrate - N test. This is particularly true if the 2012 crop was corn. With the dry summer, the crop may not have used all of the N fertilizer applied for the previous crop and left a large amount of residual nitrate-N that could be used by the 2013 crop. To be useful, a soil sample for nitrate should be taken to a depth of two feet for corn and four feet for sugar beets. The sample should be taken after the soil temperature is below 50 degrees. A soil sample taken before the soil temperatures are below 50 degrees is a waste of money and time. The nitrate-N soil test value will be erroneous. If the weather conditions continue dry into winter, one should strongly consider spring application. Spring applications result in less chance of N loss and you will also have a better idea of the crop potential in 2013. A spring preplant soil nitrate-N test will also be helpful, similar to the fall soil test described earlier in this article.

Central Plains Fall Sale

“The Big Event” October 20, 2012 • 10:30 AM Swiftel Center, Brookings, SD

The plan for this year’s sale will again offer around 60 lots of tied cattle with outstanding pedigrees….

some having the potential to market bulls and embryos, others with the potential to make a statement in the show ring, and some that will be outstanding individuals for putting milk in the tank and building great genetic futures.

Added to this exciting menu will be groups of excellent bred heifers and outstanding milk cows for purchase by all in attendance.

Many of these cattle will come from freestall, parlor operations, giving these cattle a quick and easy transition to their new operation for the good of the buyer and the cattle. These cattle will not be tied; they will be penned by consignor or in groups accordingly. These cattle will get the same great care as the tied cattle. They will be clipped, washed, fed and bedded. They will be sold one at a time through the sale ring; unless a consignor desires to have theirs sold as a group. The values of these cattle will in no way take a back seat to the tied cattle…as a matter of fact, the top seller could come out of this group; but will be handled in this manner to help the crew, staff and facilities accommodate this exciting sale. It should also be to the consignors’ advantage as well, and perhaps to the advantage of the animals involved.
