Testimonials


Very worthwhile for anyone in the dairy industry
I was fortunate to be able to bring my second-year Dairy Science students to the 2018 Calf Care Connection. Not only did they find the sessions valuable and interesting, but I picked up a few key points as well. I plan to incorporate the 2019 session into my class schedule again. Very worthwhile for anyone in the dairy industry.

It is more than just feeding calves...
Over the past 5 years, Lakeshore Technical College students have been able to participate in PDPW workshops. The value of the educational benefit to them and myself is immeasurable. PDPW brings the producers and industry professionals together in order to network and share their vast knowledge in calf raising. The Calf Care Connection workshops keep all in the industry up to date on all the latest in practices and research to allow all of us to provide the best life for us and the animals we care for.
