on dairy technology
The University of Wisconsin-Extension is hosting a program called, 'What's New With Dairy Facilities?' on Thursday, Dec. 13, in Green Bay.
This will be an opportunity for farms of all sizes to hear about some new ways to save energy, labor, and time on the farm.
The day's agenda includes a variety of speakers.
Scott Sanford, senior outreach specialist at UW-Madison, will talk about tips for saving energy on the farm and new lighting options for agricultural buildings.
Dr. Paul Fricke, UW-Madison/UW-Extension reproductive specialist, will overview research assessing several new technologies that hold potential to improve reproduction in dairy cattle.
After lunch, Dr. Doug Reinemann, UW-Madison/UW-Extension milking systems specialist, will share some research and observations on some newer milking systems that are available.
The day will wrap up with Dairy Modern Systems, headquartered out of Kaukauna, sharing photos and examples of technologies they have implemented on farms in northeast Wisconsin.
Cost of this program is $20, which includes lunch and materials. Morning and afternoon refreshments will be sponsored by Keller, Inc.
