The Dairy Authority Events
03/29/14 Herd Culture
Several Vet Students came down from CSU to assist TDA and a producer with a herd culture.
TDA folks fondly refer to a herd culture as doing the chichi cha-cha (perhaps we should be careful here) :)
In any case the event went off with out a hitch. Six vet students showed up at the office at 3:15 AM to head to the dairy. A second set of 5 showed up at 9:15 AM and headed to the dairy to releive the first 6 while another 3 people stayed in the lab to organize the samples and begin plating.
We ended up collecting milk for milk cultures on 2468 cows. Shift 1 collected 1324 cultures and shift 2 collected 1144 samples. Additionally all samples were plated and in the incubator by 3:30 PM that day thanks to those students who organized and plated!
Wish I had taken more pictures. Below are the pics that I have...
