Abstract

Helping dairy producers become compliant with FARM Program is an excellent way to become a valuable member of the management team on a dairy. Not only will you build trust and appreciation with your dairy producers, but you will gain billable hours for your dairy practice. This starts with reviewing the FARM Program book that each processor provides their dairy clients. From there, it involves creating and reviewing many required FARM Program protocols. Mock FARM evaluations can be performed to evaluate how a dairy will score on hygiene, body condition, hock and knee scores, and lameness. This information can be used for management and facility decisions to achieve FARM compliance during future evaluations.
