Wisconsin Vet School to Host Pre-Conference Event

Veterinarians are invited to attend a tour and lab demonstrations March 30 as part of the Dairy Calf and Heifer Association’s annual conference.



The University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine and the Wisconsin Veterinary Diagnostic Lab will be hosting tour and lab demonstrations for veterinarians on March 30 as part of a pre-conference event held by the Dairy Calf and Heifer Association (DCHA).

The session, limited to members on a first-come, first served basis, will feature presentations and hands-on labs on calf respiratory scoring, ultrasound imaging of the calf thorax, pharyngeal swabbing and other diagnostic tests.

The Dairy Calf and Heifer Association’s annual conference will be held March 31-April 1 at the Madison Marriott West in Middleton, Wis.

“The conference committee has been collaborating to develop an agenda that includes calf and heifer management strategies, new industry technologies, employee management sessions, producer roundtables, hands-on demonstrations, farm tours and many networking opportunities,” said Tamilee Nennich, associate professor at Purdue University Department of Animal Sciences, who will be serving as the co-chair of the upcoming conference.

The conference is open to veterinarians, custom heifer raisers, dairy producers, nutritionists and anyone with a vested interest in raising calves.
