NEW T4 SERIES:

SHIFT TO THE NEXT LEVEL.

ALL NEW T4 SERIES:

MEET THE ULTIMATE FARMHAND When you hire someone to work on your farm, what qualities do you look for? Versatility? Dependability? Strength? Fortunately for you, you’re bound to find all of these qualities in a NEW T4 Series tractor, the ultimate farmhand, from New Holland. And like a T4, sometimes good looks don’t hurt either. Visit us to see them in person!

NEW T5 Electro Command™ tractors shift your farming operation to the next level. The Electro Command 16X16 semi-powershift transmission eliminates your days of shifting through ranges and gears since one lever is all you’ll need. Simply use your thumb to shift up or down with the two buttons on the side of the lever. The only time you’ll need to clutch is when you shift between low and high range. These 91and 98-PTO-hp tractors are SMART for the way you farm.

“... helping us achieve our goals of SCC under 200,000.” — Paul Legler

HILL TOP JERSEY FARM, CHANDLER, TEXAS PAUL LEGLER, Manager, pictured with daughter Molly at World Dairy Expo Helping us achieve our goals of SCC under 200,000 “I’ve used Udder Comfort™ for 8 years in herds I’ve owned or managed, ranging 1000 to 5000 cows, and I have to say I just love this product. It does everything I want it to: It gets the pliability of the udder back for easier and cleaner milkout, a faster flow, and comfort for the cow,” says Paul Legler, manager today of Hill Top Jerseys, Chandler, Texas — a high genetic merit herd with several bulls on stud, including “T-Bone.” “We’ve been relying on Udder Comfort for our fresh cows and in the hospital pen. Getting clean milkout on our fresh animals is a better situation for udder health. “We do a prefresh regimen starting one week before calving, when the edema first comes on. We apply Udder Comfort 2 to 3 times before calving and continue after calving.” “Being proactive with the fresh animals has absolutely decreased our need for antibiotic treatments.

“We have seen a dramatic reduction in summer mastitis on the fresh cows and heifers in the East Texas heat. “The big thing is, by removing the swelling and cakiness, we are able to help those beautiful heifers develop. We want to see our heifers reach their genetic potential.”

Quality Udders Make Quality Milk

Keep the milk in the system 1.888.773.7153 1.613.652.9086 uddercomfort.com Call to locate a distributor near you. For external application to the udder only after milking, as an essential component of udder management. Always wash and dry teats thoroughly before milking.

I have been cows get mastitis – an infection in the udder. There are a gazillion reasons for a cow to develop mastitis. Pathogens that cause swelling and inammation in an udder can be found in the environment, on dirty milking equipment and faulty equipment. In fact, dirty laundry can cause mastitis in cows. Because we use microber towels to clean the cows’ udders during milking prep, the towels have to be washed after every milking. If the towels are not properly washed, it’s possible for germs to quickly spread to other cows. We use one towel per cow, so every day, 230 individual towels need to be put in the washer and dryer. And we have to use super-hot water and high heat when we dry towels. Our compost barn is the perfect environment for pathogens to thrive. Instead of having dust mites in their bedding, the cows have ugly little pathogens like Staph aureus, S. bacillus, and yes, the nastiest of them all, Klebsiella and E. coli. It’s imperative that we maintain excellent prep procedures to keep the cases of mastitis in our herd to a minimum. Mastitis costs us money due to lower production and administering medication to the affected animal. Awhile back, when a new case of mastitis showed up, we would take a sample of milk and run it into the vet’s ofce. After several days, we would have test results that would tell us what medication to

Thursday morning, because my husband was snoring to beat the band, I was up at 3:30. I typed this column, and then chose to go look at a sample I was “cooking’ in the incubator. Turns out we were treating the cow with the incorrect medication. As soon as I get to be great at growing these little germs, we should start to save a bit of money. For questions, or comments, e-mail me at kahoffman@newulmtel.net. Kerry and her husband Steve have operated their New Ulm, MN dairy farm as a team since 1993. Currently, they milk 130 cows with the help of several employees.
