Dairy Calf & Heifer Conference Now Taking Registrations
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 01/14/2019

The Dairy Calf and Heifer Association will host its next annual conference in Wisconsin again next spring. The event will be held April 9-11 at the Madison Marriott West in Middleton to help heifer growers network with one another and share ideas.

Organizers say there will be producer panels, presentations and breakout sessions highlighting business management, labor issues, risk assessment, fighting disease outbreaks and customer relations.

This year's keynote speaker will be Keith Poulsen, who will talk about the 'Growth Mindset on the Ranch Encompasses More Than the Health of the Calves.' Other sessions speakers will include Robert Hagevoort will speak about the 'Best Management Practices for Milk and Dairy Beef Quality Assurance,' and Jennifer Van Os will discuss 'Welfare of Dairy Calves and Heifers: Relevance to the Animal, the Producer and the Consumer.'

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

Online registration is now open for the conference. For more information, call 855-400-3242 or go to: calfandheifer.org.
