dairy consultant, bottlenecks, future opportunities


Dairy veterinarians may desire to add, or increase the amount of, consulting to the list of services they provide. To accom­plish this goal, veterinarians will need to develop a consistent consulting process. Once the problem has been identified, the next step is using data and observations to create a picture of the dairy’s current performance. There are a variety of ways to acquire, collect and analyze data. The next step in the process is identifying bottlenecks. After the consultant has identified bottlenecks, a report is typically prepared and presented to the client. Dairy consultants may to choose to consult on almost any part, or all parts of dairy systems. A number of opportuni­ties are available today, and new opportunities will likely de­velop in the future.
