Today is a New Normal- Shifting Mindset and Strategy in the Face of COVID-19
This FREE webinar will be presented by Mike Lormore, DVM, MS, MBA – Director, Zoetis US Dairy Cattle Technical Services and Richard L Wallace, DVM, MS – Sr Manager, Zoetis US Dairy Cattle Technical Services, this Thursday, April 30th, 2020 at 12:00 p.m. CST | 1:00 p.m. EST | 11:00 a.m. MST | 10:00 a.m. PST.
This webinar will have you looking past the news of the day toward the future. What might the new normal be? Dr. Lormore and Dr. Wallace will look into their crystal ball and share their insight. How do you keep your herd and business viable for the next three months? The next six months? In light of COVID-19 induced market changes, many dairy producers are being told they need to reduce their milk marketings by 5 to 25% of established base volume sales. Others are continuing to dump tanker loads of milk daily. Futures prices for milk are less than break even. This webinar will briefly address the major drivers of the market dynamic changes and we will discuss the various managerial options available to farm teams to effectively manage through these times. Topics will include milking frequency, alterations in ration formulation, stocking density, and culling and beef market dynamics, forage quality, herd health among others. We will address production implications, financial implications and the means to actively assess these opportunities on specific dairies. We will place emphasis on the importance of healthy, highly efficient cows and the need to be appropriately positioned from a business standpoint as markets are opened up and product demand is reestablished.
