The University of Wisconsin-Extension will host its annual Dairy and Beef Well-Being Conference on March 11 at the UW-Platteville Pioneer Farm. Organizers say the event will focus on educating consumers and animal care practices.

Dairy and beef producers, veterinarians, farm service providers, educators, emergency managers, first responders, and elected officials are encouraged to attend.

The keynote speaker will be Wanda Patsche of Minnesota Farm Living, which is a blog working to connect consumers to the farmers and people who grow their food. She will address how to share your story with consumers with a presentation entitled, Building Your Ag Story through Social Media. In addition, Ron Gill who is widely known as a pioneer in animal handling and stockmanship will be on hand for a demonstration with live animals.

Other topics will cover cow comfort and transition, quality assurance, and managing youngstock.

This program has been approved for continuing education credits for veterinary practitioners, veterinary technicians, and humane officers. Also, Beef/Dairy Beef Quality Assurance and the American Registry for Professional Animal Scientists credits will be offered.
