There are many different, economical ways to improve each area of herd-health management. Priorities must be set and progress
But it's also important that producers realize it is much easier to control disease and develop a health system in herds with
a controlled, defined breeding season.
A confined breeding season offers more flexibility concerning what products can be used. Such management changes make sense
not only from a profitability standpoint, but also for improving overall management and herd health.
