“This collaboration of academia and industry has resulted in a valuable educational tool for dairy producers and their employees,” says Betsy Flores, the director of regulatory affairs for the National Milk Producers Federation. “Resources such as this are needed to complement programs like the National Dairy FARM program.”
The next two courses, also developed by the University of Minnesota School of Veterinary Medicine, will be available this fall. The titles are: “Moving Cows to the Milking Parlor;” and, “Using Cattle Handling Systems Safely, Efficiently.”
The courses are available on USB Flash drive and CD. To receive a copy of the "Introduction to Dairy Stockmanship" and future courses, contact your local Merck Animal Health representative or e-mail Info@DairyCare365.com.
