ITHACA, N.Y. — Registration for a new Calf and Heifer Management Online Course offered by Cornell CALS PRO-DAIRY is open and the course will be offered in two different formats. The Real-Time Course (offered October 29 to December 31) will operate like our previous online classes with coursework, quizzes, and homework assigned weekly. The On-Demand Course option, which is new, can be started anytime with only recorded lectures and quizzes to complete, but must be completed in six months from the start of enrollment in the course.
The Calf and Heifer Online Course will cover basic calf and heifer management principles. It is led by staff from Cornell University and industry researchers and designed for dairy business on-farm personnel (owner or employee) who are seeking to increase their knowledge of calf and heifer management. Participants should possess a formal or informal background in dairy cattle management, but not necessarily in calf and heifer management. A certificate of completion from Cornell CALS PRO-DAIRY is awarded upon completion of the course. Topics include: Calf Nutrition Pre- and Post-Weaning, Replacement Economics, Colostrum Management, Inventory Management, Genetics, Calf Health, and Housing. Registration is $250.00 per person.
