Raw Milk: Risk Or Reward?
The consumption of raw milk has gained considerable popularity in recent years, yet still remains a source of great debate regarding the potential health impacts. The Food and Drug Administration as well as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report the well-known risk for contracting foodborne disease from the presence of human pathogens in raw milk. A recent review article goes into great detail about the history of pasteurization, the prevalence of foodborne pathogens in milk and the claims associated with the consumption of raw milk (Lucey 2015). Pasteurization was developed over 100 years ago to reduce the transmission of disease through milk, in particular, tuberculosis. In 1938 it was reported that 25% of all disease outbreaks related to food/water were from milk, compared to less than 1% today and now tuberculosis is not of concern due to the implementation of pasteurization.

No More Unnecessary Midnight Calving Pen Checks!
It’s 6:00 p.m. A farmer is finishing chores on the dairy and is about to head in for the night, when he/she notices 1157, a heifer that looks like she’s close to calving. The farmer decides to check on the heifer in a few hours to monitor her progress. At 9:00 p.m. the farmer checks 1157 again, but there are no new developments, so he/she decides to come back at midnight. But yet again, when the farmer checks 1157, there’s still no progress. Now, tired, sleep deprived, and frustrated, the farmer decides to head to bed and check her in the morning.

Alternative Housing: Raising Calves In Pairs
Almost every farm has at least one heifer at the bottom of the pecking order and last to eat at the feed bunk. The sub-par performance of these heifers results in a delay to breeding weight, and in turn, an increase in age at first calving. Recent research has shown that changes in calf management may help improve feeding and social behaviors. You may have heard of this system before—the buddy system and it works for calves!

Equipment function affects milk quality
Milking equipment function can have a profound negative impact on teat end health and overall milk quality. On the flip side, if we properly maintain equipment function we can positively impact the bottom line, udder and teat health, bulk tank somatic cell count and ultimately milk quality. It is important to remember that the goal of milking is to harvest as much milk as possible as efficiently as possible. However, this is a careful balancing act between efficiency and teat end health. Vacuum improperly set may have a negative effect on udder and teat health, but when properly balanced with pulsation, we can optimize milk harvest while minimizing the damage.

Be careful when cutting corners
In a few past issues of the Dairy Pipeline, I reported the initial stages of a Conservation Innovation Grant (CIG) project of the Department of Dairy Science, and funded by Natural Resources Conservation Services, in which we were comparing the nutritional quality of different winter crops for silage.
