Health is essential for sustainable dairy production. Herd health status is a key parameter to ensure productivity, efficiency, and profitability of dairy farms.
The fact is, 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 mastitis, 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 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 diseases related to The Vital 90™ Days (mastitis, ketosis). These solutions should be part of a holistic approach based on a partnership between veterinarians and farmers and you should consult with your veterinarian.
