Dairy signal offers timely tips for dairy producers

By Blake Jackson

Professional Dairy Producers (PDP) flagship program, The Dairy Signal, continues its commitment to providing dairy producers and industry professionals with timely and relevant educational resources. This week's lineup tackles critical aspects of farm management, focusing on animal care, feed optimization, and market outlooks.

  • Tuesday's episode delves into the safe and humane handling of down cows. Dr. Kurt Vogel, Director of the Humane Handling Institute and Associate Professor at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls, will lead the session, prioritizing the well-being of both animals and personnel.
  • On Wednesday, Dr. Rick Grant, Trustee of the William H. Miner Agricultural Research Institute, will present strategies to optimize dry matter intake through effective feed management practices. Dry matter intake significantly impacts milk production and farm profitability, making this session highly valuable.
