Register for the Calf Care Connection Workshops
Raising dairy calves significantly impacts profitability and doing things right is a must.
That's why PDPW members developed the PDPW Calf Care Workshops: Tuesday, Nov. 13 in northwestern Wisconsin, and Wednesday, November 14 in northeastern Wisconsin.
This year’s Calf Care Workshops feature a new twist: classroom science combined with tours to demonstrate practical, on-farm application.
At each location, Dr. Becky Brotzman of the University of Wisconsin-Madison will present, “Healthy Environments for Healthy Calves.” Then, after lunch, tours will depart for area farms to view calf facilities and discuss care and feeding techniques with the calf managers of those farms.
The Tuesday, November 13 workshop begins at 9:30 a.m. at the Holiday Inn–Campus Area,
2703 Craig Road, Eau Claire, Wis. The afternoon tours will visit Hamlin Valley Farms in Strum Wis. and Arrowhead Farms in Chippewa Falls, Wis. The bus will return to the Holiday Inn by 4:15 p.m.
The Wednesday, November 14 workshop begins at 9:30 a.m. at Millhome Supper Club, 16524 Lax Chapel Road, Kiel, Wis. The afternoon tours will visit Hanke Farms, Sheboygan Falls, Wis., and Hochkammer Dairy Farm, Manitowoc, Wis., returning to the supper club by 4:15 p.m.
