Consumers today are very different than they used to be, yet have a strong interest in where their food comes from, including how food animals are raised and handled. To help build consumer trust in dairy products, the Dairy Cattle Welfare Council (DCWC) is pleased to offer the webinar series for 2018. These educational sessions will be available to attendees from across the United States as well as around the world.
The webinars feature top-rated topics from previous DCWC Annual Meetings as well as other pertinent topics. They offer an opportunity to learn about food integrity and communicating with the consumer as well as animal-human interaction at the farm level. Webinars are free of charge, but you must register in advance.
