Latest NZ News: BDD is here to stay?
For the last 3 years we have been surveying dairy farms in New Zealand and have discovered that Digital dermatitis is indeed present on the feet of a small percentage of cows. It can be found on over 60% of dairy farms but usually only a few mild cases are seen.
What to do:
If you are a dairy farmer the first thing to do is to be informed about this disease. We have released a new updated information leaflet available (see below).
Next, every farmer should check the feet of their cows - look at the video (below) on how simple this is.
