The University of California Cooperative Extension in December is holding the second in a series of seminars directed at dairy owners/managers, employees, and allied industry.
The goal of the California Dairy Management Seminars is to provide science-based information and discussion on topics contributing to the continued success and profitability of dairy operations in California.
The seminars will be presented separately in English and Spanish. Topics for the final seminar of 2012 are:
"Examining Sick Cows - Step by Step" by Noelia Silva-del-Rio, DVM, Ph.D., UC extension dairy specialist
"Common Fresh Cow Diseases - Cause and Prevention" by Travis Thayer, DVM, Diamond V Dairy technical trainer.
Seminars conclude with an industry sponsored lunch in Tulare and Modesto, and dinner in Orland.
Seminars are offered free of charge, but pre-registration is appreciated to guarantee handouts and meal. To register, contact Jennifer Heguy at (209) 525-6800 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
