PDPW to Hold Hispanic Cow Delivery, Calf Care Trainings
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 08/19/2016

Dairy farmers who hire Hispanic labor on their operations may want to consider sending some of their employees to an upcoming training program being offered by the Professional Dairy Producers of Wisconsin. The group is holding two identical Obstetrics & Newborn Calf Workshops in September, which will be taught exclusively in Spanish.

Oscar Duarte, DVM, will lead a 'Delivering Cow' session and provide tips to ensure first-rate maternity care. During the 'For the Newborn Calf' session, dairy specialist Jorge Delgado will teach students to work with refractometers, serum samples and colostrum samples.

The sessions will take place September 22 at Heeg Bros Dairy near Colby, and on September 23 at Wayside Dairy in Greenleaf. Both programs will begin at 9:00 a.m.
