As dairy farms grow and expand, so does the workforce who performs the daily tasks on the dairy operation. Some of these workers have little or no training or may speak in another language, predominately Spanish.
To assist with on-farm training, visit UW-Milk Quality’s Spanish Resources which include factsheets, presentations, posters, videos, research articles, and other links regarding milk quality, mastitis and milking management.
UW-Milk Quality promotes an integrated, team-based approach to best manage udder health and milk quality. Producing high quality milk is not a one-person job. It takes farmers and their local dairy advisors to be able to evaluate, manage and improve milk quality. At UW-Milk Quality, we develop tools and resources to help dairy producers meet their milk quality goals and increase farm profitability.
