Thursday Dairy Updates are scheduled for 12:30 to 1:00 PM March 1 and March 15, 2018. On March 1, Frank Welcome, DVM, MBA, Sr. Extension Associate, Quality Milk Production Services, Animal Health Diagnostic Center, Cornell University, will present Milk Quality: It’s Not Just About Cell Counts Anymore. Quality standards for food are increasingly being established by retailers who take their que from consumers. Consumers are no longer concerned with regulatory standards. They want evidence of measures and consistency of quality that often greatly exceed regulatory levels. Consumer definitions of quality are also expanding to include cow care and environmental stewardship. Join the Webinar

On March 15, Joe Lawrence, Dairy Forage Systems Specialist, Cornell CALS PRO-DAIRY
will present Make the Most of Advances in Forage Management. Many exciting developments, from improved forage varieties to precision equipment, to advances in the understanding of fiber digestibility, continue to enhance the value of forages in feeding programs. Lawrence will address harvest and storage strategies that are at times the missing link in capitalizing on these others advances. Join the Webinar
