Milk is one of the most important source of many essential nutrients for people around the world. According to the latest data from the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), annually more than 900 million tons of milk are a considerable part of the daily supply of energy, protein and dietary fat for 6 billion people worldwide.

On June 1st we celebrate World Milk Day taking this as an opportunity to reflect on the importance of guaranteeing the quality and safety of this important food that contributes to the daily diet of people all over the world. This is only possible if we look after the health and well-being of the animals that produce it.

In order to contribute to this, it is essential to plan and implement animal health strategies that contemplate the care of cattle at all stages of dairy production. This includes constant monitoring by veterinary professionals, together with the implementation of actions that promote animal well-being, such as an adequate environment in dairy farms, proper feeding and even technical advisory by experts.

When dairy cattle are healthy, well fed and have a comfortable environment, their risk of catching a disease is much lower, allowing animals to produce more and higher quality milk.

This means that safeguarding healthy animals benefits to maintain and improve productivity, which collaborates with producing high quality, nutritious and safe food. This is strongly linked to the One Health concept established by OMSA, that states that human health and animal health are interdependent, as well as that of the ecosystem in which they live. The health of the animals that produce milk is a key factor; without it, the chain is broken, and people would be deprived of this important food.

To achieve a health strategy that benefits the animal and contributes to its productivity, it is necessary to focus on the prevention and control of diseases that affect animal health. At the same time, it is essential to have specialized and personalized technical support that considers the context and needs of each producer and his livestock.

At Biogénesis Bagó we are committed to accompanying dairy farmers with a complete portfolio of world-class solutions that contribute to the prevention of diseases and enhance production in key stages of the dairy sector.

Milk and milk products are among the most important foods for people around the world, especially during early childhood so caring for the quality and safety of milk is a task for everyone involved in its production. This is why on World Milk Day we want to remember how important it is to take care of this key food in the nutrition of people around the world, and to recognize the dedication of all those who contribute daily so that we can have a glass of safe milk on our table.
