The Professional Dairy Producers of Wisconsin (PDPW) announced the launch of five individual Milking Science Camps located throughout Wisconsin this summer.
The hands-on two-day workshop is designed to educate Hispanic workers on the how and why of milking and will be taught exclusively in Spanish by the renowned Dr. Oscar Duarte, DVM.
Training locations include: Juneau - June 26-27; Sturgeon Bay - July 17-18; Hillsboro - July 24-25; Cochrane - Aug. 7-8; and Darlington - Aug. 21-22.
The comprehensive educational program offers hand-on learning to master cow handling, milking parlor efficiencies, on-farm safety and management of drug residue avoidance.
The breadth of dairy science offered through this training will provide employees with the resources and tools needed to optimize their on-farm effectiveness and boost the dairy's bottom line.
Due to limited space, pre-registration is required. Those interested can register online at www.pdpw.org
or by mail-in registration.
Registration for PDPW members is $299 per person and $399 for non-members. The registration fee covers the two-day workshop, training materials and lunch.
