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 2019. These one-hour live educational sessions are available to attendees from around the world.
Topic: “Forming High Performing Down Cow Care Teams”
Date: August 7, 2019
Time: 5:00 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time
Speaker: Dr. Conrad Spangler
Veterinarian at Riverview LLP
Dr. Spangler was born and raised on a small dairy farm in Southeast Iowa, where he developed his passion for the dairy industry. After receiving his BS in Dairy Science from Iowa State and his DVM from the University of Minnesota, he practiced dairy production medicine in Dalhart, TX for 2.5 years. For the last 6 years, Conrad has served as the Director of Animal Health for Riverview, LLP, where he works together with the dairy and calf site managers and employees to ensure the health, welfare, and production of the herd.
Webinars are geared toward dairy farmers, veterinarians, consultants, industry, Extension/academia, and government representatives interested in many aspects of dairy cattle welfare. Professional, undergraduate, and graduate students are strongly encouraged to participate. Live webinars are free of charge, but you must register (recordings are available to DCWC members).
