Organic Veterinary Training Sessions Scheduled
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 03/16/2017
Veterinarians interested in learning more about organic livestock practices and regulations are invited to attend an Organic Veterinary Training Session co-hosted by the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture and Organic Valley. The forums will be held
in Eau Claire and Madison, and will be taught by veterinarians Guy Jodarski and Hubert Karreman.
"With the growth of organic agriculture in Wisconsin, more and more veterinarians are being called to organic farms," said Angie Sullivan, organics and grazing specialist with DATCP's Division of Agricultural Development. "DATCP staff, as well as
the Wisconsin Organic Advisory Council, have been approached by agricultural professionals saying there is a need for this type of training."
Dr. Jodarski serves as lead veterinarian for CROPP Cooperative/Organic Valley. He works in organic and sustainable livestock practice with an emphasis in dairy cattle herd health.
Dr. Karreman is an organic dairy veterinarian and a leading voice in organic veterinary medicine. Working with real cases in clinical practice for 20 years under the strict 'no antibiotics' rule for organic livestock, he pioneered non-antibiotic treatments
for infectious disease.
Space is limited to 50 participants in each class. A $25.00 registration fee includes lunch.
