A recording of the recent Penn State "Technology Tuesdays" webinar, "Animal Welfare and the Dairy Industry," is now available.
During the webinar, Dr. Ernest Hovingh and Dr. David Wolfgang, extension veterinarians with Penn State Extension, discussed the importance of third-party evaluations and the relationship between the resulting score, cow comfort, and production. Other topics covered include: what are the health care needs of the herd and cause-and-effect issues with lameness.
The Technology Tuesdays webinar series continues through May with new topics.
