The Dairyland Initiative offers “Transition Cow Facility Planning & Remodeling Dairy Barns,” a workshop by Drs. Nigel Cook and Ken Nordlund, Nov. 1-2. The conference will be held at the F.K. Bemis Conference Center in De Pere, Wis.

The workshop will walk you through the steps you need to take to create facilities that make your cows happy, healthy and productive. You'll learn how to use the Transition Cow Index and other partial budgeting tools to show that the decision makes economic sense, and participants will use virtual tours of facilities to share ideas and the Wisconsin Blueprint to layout the floor plan of the new facility.

Workshop participants should bring a computer that can run an Excel spreadsheet and has wireless internet capability. Free wi-fi access will be provided.
