Dairy Calf and Heifer Association Conference Planned
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 02/12/2015

Registration is now open for the Dairy Calf and Heifer Association annual conference, which will be held this year in Madison. The event takes place March 31 through April 1 at the Madison Marriott West.

"This year's conference has been condensed into a great two-day event focused on the latest in calf and heifer raising," said Conference Committee Co-Chair Vickie Franken. "The new two-day format has allowed us to introduce a very unique experience to producer and veterinarians through the pre-conference event, an addition that the conference planning committee is very excited about."

This year's keynote, Brad Scott of Scott Brothers Dairy Farms in San Jacinto, California, will share his operation's experience with the popular CBS show, Undercover Boss.

Attendees will have the opportunity to hear from industry experts sharing research, expertise and advice on calf and heifer management. New dairy beef sessions focused on nutritional and economic considerations will also be held. And a pre-conference event hosted by the University of Wisconsin-School of Veterinary Medicine and the Wisconsin Veterinary Diagnostic Lab will be held for those who arrive early.

A tradeshow reception featuring a silent auction to raise funds for the DCHA scholarship, live entertainment and more will again be available.

Custom heifer raisers, dairy producers, veterinarians, nutritionists and anyone with a vested interest in raising calves and heifers is invited to attend the conference.
