The Cow Comfort Workshops are an educational program for farmers, employees, and agri-service professionals who work directly with dairy cows. The workshops will cover economics of improving cow comfort, stall design and management, stocking density, heat abatement, and effects of cow comfort on production.
Two separate sessions will be held: one to focus on freestall, and one to focus on tie stall cow comfort. Each session will include an on-farm portion where attendees will walk through a facility assessment.
Each Cow Comfort Workshop is a day-long program, held from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM. The program will be held in the classroom and on farm, with a combination of presentations, farm walk-throughs, and discussion.
