Tom Oesch, SwissLane Dairy, Alto, Michigan., has employed a great deal of technology to develop a more productive family dairy business. This fourth-generation family business now milks over 2000 cows, 25% of which are milked by the eight robotic milking units which were installed in 2011. The Oesch family use activity monitors to collect data on their dairy cows, which allows for early detection of health issues. Tom will be explaining how genomic testing was a logical step to improve the herd’s genetic potential and increase the longevity of his cows. The farm has an onsite lab to better incorporate embryo transfer, with a keen interest in selecting with high rankings for Net Merit and Dairy Wellness Traits.
