JUNEAU, Wis. -- Professional Dairy Producers of Wisconsin (PDPW) is hosting two workshops to help dairy producers and those responsible for calf care on dairy farms create exceptional care in extreme weather conditions.


It is not too late to register for a Calf Care ConnectionTM program November 12 in Fennimore, Wis. and repeated November 13 in Cleveland, Wis., from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.


The hands-on workshop will cover topics such as minimizing stillbirths, effectively vaccinating calves, managing dietary needs with fluctuating weather, and a panel discussion featuring three seasoned dairy producers sharing their best calf-raising practices.
