Dairy Health at Elanco

Everything starts with a healthy herd

Good Health is essential for sustainable dairy production. Herd health status is a key parameter to ensure productivity, efficiency, and profitability of dairy farms, with transition health a key factor.

60 days prior to calving until 30 days after calving (The Vital 90™ Days), is a time of great risk and vulnerability for every cow in your herd. During The Vital 90™ Days, cows' immune systems are weakened, opening the door to disorders such as metritis, and retained placentas which can compromise their long-term wellbeing and productivity potential. They also experience a period of negative energy balance increasing the risk of ketosis and associated diseases (displaced abomasum, ovarian dysfunction).

Elanco dairy solutions to tackle challenges during The Vital 90™ Days period include diagnostics, monitoring tools, and educational materials, as well as products to treat or reduce the incidence of some related diseases, such as ketosis. These solutions should be part of a holistic approach based on a partnership between the veterinary surgeon and farmer.

There are several challenges that can have a significant impact on herd health and productivity. Find out more here: www.farmanimalhealth.co.uk/dairy
