PDPW Holding Dairy Wellbeing Workshops in Green Bay
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 01/25/2018

Farmers and their employees will have a chance to learn about the latest updates on developments in animal welfare debates and practices at a pair of meetings next month in Green Bay. The Professional Dairy Producers of Wisconsin is holding its Dairy Wellbeing workshops at the KI Convention Center on February 7 and February 8. Both sessions are identical and start at 8:00 a.m.

Organizers say animal welfare continues to be critical topic for dairy producers as consumers question where their food comes from, and activists pressure food companies to influence how animals are raised.

The workshop will feature a behind-the-scenes tour of American Foods Group meat processing plant, tracing backwards from the cooler to the harvest floor. Participants will also hear from beef buyers, market experts and USDA meat inspectors about cull-cow quality and carcass conditions.

Following the tour, participants will return to the convention center for workshop presentations from Dr. Nigel Cook, DVM, Chair of the Department of Medical Sciences and a Professor in Food Animal Production Medicine at UW-Madison School of Veterinary Medicine, and Dr. Franklyn Garry, DVM, professor in the Department of Clinical Sciences at Colorado State University.
