In response to the growing number of dairy cattle welfare audits in the United States, Dr. Nigel Cook, Dr. Jennifer Van Os, and Courtney Halbach will combine lectures, discussions, and group work to provide practical and economical on-farm improvements for dairy producers, veterinarians, consultants, and other industry professionals who are looking to improve welfare audit results, optimize performance, and address consumer concerns about animal care. Barn design and management strategies such as calf raising, adult cow ventilation and cooling, stall design and surface, and hoof health management will be discussed to improve animal well-being on-farm.
