Solving Problems on Dairy Farms registration deadline

Feb 28, 2014 (All day)

The departments of Animal Sciences and Vet Preventive Medicine will be offering a short course on Solving Problems on Dairy Farms the week of April 21-April 25, 2014 in Gerlaugh Hall, OARDC, Wooster. This course is designed for graduate students and graduating veterinary students with an interest in dairy production. Each day a different topic will be discussed in the morning (nutrition, milk quality, reproduction, records analysis, facilities/economics) and in the afternoon we visit a dairy farm so that students can conduct a farm evaluation.  After the farm visit, students discuss the farm as a group and compose recommendations that will be sent to the producers.  On several evening we will meet for dinner and have a presentation by an industry person.

Graduate students in Animal Sciences may attend the course without cost but they are required to participate fully in discussion and attend the entire week.  If you are interested in participating, you need to register by contacting Bill Weiss (weiss.6). Space is limited and slots will be filled on a first come basis.  Registration deadline is Feb 28, 2014.
