New dairy innovation technology
Dairy farms today are very different from what they were ten years ago. With the pace of technology and scientific innovation, this will certainly be the case for the next 10 years as well.
Thanks to cutting-edge research and technology, dairy farms from coast to coast are more efficient and productive than ever. In fact, the USDA reports that milk production per cow has increased by approximately 11.5% over the past decade.
And the progress isn’t slowing down anytime soon, says Jason Osterstock, vice president of precision animal health at Zoetis.
“We obviously recognize that innovation never stops. And so, whether it’s new genetic predictions, new ways to use information, new tools to extract more value from it, these are all things that we are working on every day.
In partnership with Holstein Association USA, Zoetis has developed state-of-the-art technology and resources over the years. Soon, registered Holstein breeders will be able to research new features with the rollout of Enlight 2.0.
“We continue to do this collaboration in a wide range of areas and we are really excited about the introduction of Enlight 2.0, which is a revitalization and additional features for this platform, and ultimately helps producers get more value of their investment in genetic testing.”
Zoetis prioritizes sustainability to improve efficiency and a dairy farmer’s bottom line.
“When we look at our portfolio of genetic tests, therapeutics, vaccines, diagnostics, how do we help deliver a complete solution to address these challenges and ultimately create a profitable cow?”
