Once a Day Milking (OAD)

Switching to milking cows once a day (OAD) for their entire lactation is growing in popularity. Many farmers have practised the “strategic” use of OAD. OAD for the entire lactation has been practised in New Zealand since the 1950s and also in France for many years. Good management is very important with OAD milk but at least there is a little more time for management. Get more information here
