    I know everyone has a favorite way to dry up their does. I just wanted to hear everyones opinion.

    I go to once a day milking and then stop milking completely. I dry treat all does at the end of lactation with SpectraMast, use Orbeseal as an internal teat sealant and Dry Off as an external teat sealant.

    Sara,

    I went and asked my vet about the orbeseal and got quite a confused look. He kept naming off things like SpectraMast. Is it only RX or can I find it OTC. I would really like to try it this yr.

    Thanks, Wendy

    Orbeseal is OTC. You can order it online at most farm supply stores. SpectraMast is a prescription dry cow treatment.

    HTH,
