Dairy producers: you and your employees are invited to one of four, free animal care workshops being held on dairy farms across the state this spring! Hosted by the Center for Dairy Excellence, PA Beef Council, the Professional Dairy Managers of Pennsylvania (PDMP) and Penn State Extension, the workshops will once again focus on hands-on skill-building to help you meet National FARM compliance.

A certificate will be provided at the conclusion of each workshop to show your commitment to National FARM and animal care. A Spanish interpreter will be present at each event, making the workshops ideal for both English and Spanish-speaking employees. Lunch will be provided at each workshop.

During each workshop, attendees will rotate through various stations to boost your skills and gain training in several key animal welfare areas:

  • Calf Care
  • Lameness and Locomotion
  • Euthanasia and Fitness to Transport
  • Stockmanship and more!

Register below! More details will be provided after registration.
