Description

Take your calf knowledge to the next level at the PDPW Calf Care Connection® training. This workshop will be repeating in three locations on Nov. 10, 11, and 12, 2020, from 9:30 am - 4:30 pm in Menomonie, Stratford, and Hilbert, WI with registration starting at 9 am.

Growing healthy calves is essential for any dairy, and this workshop is designed to challenge even the most seasoned calf care managers, calf feeders and other team members. During the training, participants will have the opportunity to expand their knowledge and learn tangible information that can be brought back to the farm to help calves get off to the best start possible.

General session topics include, a discussion on disease resurgence with special attention to Bovine Viral Diarrhea, and a producer panel on the lessons learned from two Wisconsin calf raisers.

Breakout session include, milk management for consistent calf nutrition, and a calf necropsy with a hands-on lab clarifying proper injection and calf tubing techniques with a discussion about the implications when done incorrectly. 

For additional information, please call PDPW at 800-947-7379 or email at mail@pdpw.org. Follow along digitally in advance of and during the event by following @dairyPDPW on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn.

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.
