This Week's Events

Start Time: Time to be determined
End Time: 12:00 AM
The Moo University collaborative will host a webinar for dairymen considering options for their facilities if they sell their cows. The webinar is noon on Friday, March 22. While there is no registration fee, pre-registration is required on-line at: https://form.jotform.com/4Hregion1/dairy-webinar-march-22-2019. Presenters will address three topics of concern for making the enterprise transition. Brian Dougherty, ISU Extension Ag Engineering Specialist, will cover some important engineering considerations when planning for the conversion of dairy barns to housing for other livestock. Advantages and limitations of different designs will be discussed, and examples of dairy barn conversions will be shown. Bill Halfman, UW-Madison Extension Monroe County Agriculture Agent, will discuss the economics of beef feeding enterprises to determine if they are a good fit for their operation and resources plus showcase spreadsheet tools and some benchmark numbers producers should consider. Tina Kohlman, UW-Madison Extension Fond du Lac Dairy & Livestock Agent, will present on the economics for farms that are no longer milking but are considering raising pre-weaned calves to utilize their facilities and labor for income generation. After the presentations there will be a question and answer period for questions from the audience. In addition, the program will be archived for viewing at a later time. Following registration, a link will be emailed with directions on how to access the webinar.
