FORT ATKINSON, Wis. — Our next monthly webinar will take place on Monday, December 13 at noon (Central time). Sarah Morrison, a research scientist at the William H. Miner Agricultural Research Institute, will present “Caring for calves in cold weather.”
As temperatures fall, it is important to remember that the youngest animals on the farm are most sensitive to the cold. This webinar will address areas of concern and ways to make certain the nutritional and management needs of calves are met during winter.
Hoard’s Dairyman launched its free webinar series nine years ago in conjunction with the University of Illinois. These educational sessions are held the second Monday of each month and are broadcast live from noon until 1 p.m. (Central time). Attendees are encouraged to submit questions before, during, and after the webinar. They will be answered at the conclusion of the presentation.
Each hour-long webinar includes nationally known and carefully selected presenters who discuss the most timely and relevant challenges faced by today’s dairy producers. Past topics include finance, nutrition, milk quality, herd care, milk marketing, and dairy policy.
