Cow Comfort Workshops for freestalls & tie stalls

College of Agriculture and Life Sciences Cornell University

Two separate sessions will be held: one on freestall and one on tie stall cow comfort

Cornell CALS PRO-DAIRY and Cornell Cooperative Extension are offering regional Cow Comfort Workshops for freestall and tie stall barns. Cow Comfort Workshops are an educational program for farmers, employees and agriservice professionals who work directly with dairy cows. The workshops will cover economics of improving cow comfort, stall design and management, stocking density, heat abatement, and effects on production.

Two separate sessions will be held: one to focus on freestall cow comfort and one to focus on tie stall cow comfort. Each session will include an on-farm portion where attendees walk through and assess facilities.

Each Cow Comfort Workshop is a day-long program held from 9:30 am to 3 pm. The program will be held on farm with a combination of presentations, demonstrations, farm walk-throughs and discussion. Each site is managed independently and registration fees may apply. Contact the site coordinator for more information.
