Overall good but in health sections more diseases should be discussed with their treatment. Feed management should be simplified like how much forage, grain, feed needed for per 100 kg of weight etc.
The course gave a clear and detailed view of all the compartments of the dairy industry with specific number and studies that give a clear message of the development and the cycle of the industry,

The course is very informative and covering diverse aspects of dairy production and management, moreover it provides a lot of medical knowledge which necessary for keeping the cow healthy and efficiently productive. Nutrition also is covered in a detailed and illustrated way.
This was actually incredibly interesting. As someone who has been a farm milker for 5 years now I thought this was only going to revise my current knowledge but nope it gave me so much more then I knew. I love it! Great videos and really interesting content. Thank you!

Dear Professors and Coursera team,
I really loved going through this course as part of my personal interest to know in detail about cows. My wish is to rear a cow and calf as a pet animal in my home and I am confident that I can very well procure a cow now with the help of knowledge that you all professors imparted to me about the cows, calfs, heifers, its feed, management, impact to environment and many more in this course.
My heartfelt thanks to Coursera and its team, all professors for their great efforts!
Best regards, Badri

Thank you for this great course, however, I was disappointed to learn that during the entire course, particularly the heat detection segment, the use of pedometers and other technology to assist with heat detection was not mentioned. also that there are computerized management systems that make the life of the farmer much easier. I know that the dairy farm at Penn State uses Afimilk systems to collect data and to manage the data in order to take care of heat detection and manage herd health. Thank you

Very useful for the dairy managers. This course had added tremendous value to my knowledge base although I am not a qualified Dairy professional. As a pioneer MOOC on dairy management, this course is setting very high standards of distant education. The course material is thorough, relevant and rich which proves that the team members are highly educated and experienced. They all are experts in their respective fields. Thanks for putting such efforts behind it. I will look forward to one such course on Dairy Manufacturing if made available.

An exceptional course guided by professors -"workers" who plentifully contribute to global bibliography. Update of knowledge on the topic, Organization, Prioritization, Intervention needed by various professionists engaged to cow dairying at the first stages and very good index of bibliography might be used at the ongoing stages of the occupations related to dairy farming. Besides that, the presence of Dr Van Saun in the course is a "MUST" to take it.

This is the best course ever,I knew nothing about dairy farm and I was overlooking it,but after this course I really know a lot about Dairy farm and management as well,I wish a lot of courses like this were offered here in South Africa that cover Dairy Farming to such lengths. This will help me one day when time goes by when I get my own farm and assist the community from what I learnt from the course. Thanks to Coursera and Penn State for the course.
