Consumers today are very different than they used to be, yet have a strong interest in where their food comes from, including how food animals are raised and handled. To help build consumer trust in dairy products, the Dairy Cattle Welfare Council (DCWC) is pleased to offer the webinar series for 2020. These one-hour live educational sessions are available to attendees from around the world. Live webinars are free of charge, but you must register (recordings are available to DCWC members).
