Treatment Protocols

The Platform Protocols page lists all drug and treatment protocols that are configured for your dairy in on‑premise DairyComp. Protocols allow dairies to take a more structured approach when recording and treating disease. The DairyComp protocol table keeps track of protocol details, including the disease, the treatment, pen number, etc. This information is received by the Platform and displayed in the Protocols page defined below.

To view the Protocols list, log in to the web version of the Platform and select DairyComp > Protocols from the Feature Navigation Bar.

 

1

Filter the list of protocols and navigate through the pages with the options at the top and bottom of the screen. You can use the Events drop‑down list to filter the list of protocols by event and include inactive ones by checking the Show Inactive box:

2

Any row that is displayed with an expand arrow at the beginning indicates that more protocol details are available. Click anywhere on that row to view the additional details, including the drug or treatment that should be administered on each day:

3

P#: The protocol number. You can click on this column title to sort the list by protocol number. DairyComp assigns this number to each protocol in the order they are created, and it cannot be edited once it is assigned. Each protocol also has an Order number (defined below), which is a user‑configurable option to control the order in which protocols are displayed.

4

Event: The event that will be entered for an animal when the protocol is activated. You can click on this column title to sort the list by event name.

5

Protocol: The protocol name. This name is defined on‑premise to assist with data entry. You can click on this column title to sort the list by protocol name.

6

Remark: This column displays the default remark for the protocol. You can click on this column title to sort the list by remark. If a small P in a green circle is displayed in this column, it means that DairyComp is configured to prompt the user to enter a remark for this protocol:

If the remark contains QQ in it, this means that the user must identify which quarters (front right, front left, hind right, and/or hind left) are affected. QQ can be used with events such as LAME, where the user would input the hoof or hooves affected, or events such as MAST, where the user would input the teats that are affected.

7

Go To Pen: The pen to which animals on the protocol should be moved. You can click on this column title to sort the list by the destination pen number. If the pen number displays a - (dash), it means that the animal's pen number will not be changed. A pen number of H indicates that multiple hospital pens are used; in this case, the user is prompted to define the specific hospital pen number during data entry.

8

Milk Withhold: Number of milk withhold days after last treatment. It is usually based on the MKDATClosedMilk withdrawal date.

9

Meat Withhold: Number of meat withhold days after the last treatment. It is usually based on the BFDATClosedBeef withdrawal date.

10

Time on Protocol: Expected number of days an animal will be on the protocol. It is usually based on the LTDATClosedLast treatment date.

11

Adult: Defines whether this protocol can or cannot be used on adult animals:

= This protocol is ok to use on adult animals.

= Do not use this protocol on adult animals.

12

Heifer: Defines whether this protocol can or cannot be used on heifers:

= This protocol is ok to use on heifers.

= Do not use this protocol on heifers.

13

Team: The technical team that administers the protocol.

14

Recheck: The number of days to schedule a vet recheck after the protocol treatment period ends.

15

Order: The protocol order number. You can click on this column title to sort the list by protocol order number. DairyComp allows this number to be defined for each protocol to help sort the view when there are multiple protocols for an event.
