Dr. Gustavo Schuenemann develops and coordinates Extension educational programming for veterinarians, dairy personnel, and owners throughout Ohio. The Extension programs are designed to translate research-based knowledge and skills (e.g., reproductive management, veterinary preventive medicine practices, etc.) into practical applications for immediate use. Below you will find more details on current programs:
- Ohio Dairy Health and Management Certificate Program: this comprehensive educational 3-year program offers advanced research-based knowledge and hands-on opportunities in an intensive face-to-face workshop environment to progressive dairy veterinary practitioners. For more information click here.
- Ohio Sustainable Dairy Program (OSDP): this is an educational program for dairy producers (from small to large) and their veterinarians. The OSDP uses on-farm collaborative learning to translate and implement sustainable dairy practices. For more information click here.
- Dairy Personnel School: this educational and training program provides up-to-date research-based knowledge and skills in relevant areas to dairy personnel. Educational workshops are delivered in English & Spanish. For more information click here.
