Dan Weary, University of British Columbia, will present "Cow welfare - opportunities and challenges" at noon (Central time) on Monday, April 14 during the free monthly Hoard's Dairyman webinar. This webinar was originally scheduled for February but was rescheduled due to the farm bill webinar.

Critics suggest cows on larger farms receive less individual attention and are treated only as production units. In reality, size influences different aspects of animal welfare in different ways. Reports of their link provide little support for a simple relationship; increases in size provide opportunities to improve cow welfare, but also can create risks. As always, input from attendees is welcome.

Hoard's Dairyman launched its free webinar series four years ago in conjunction with the University of Illinois. The educational sessions are held the second Monday of each month and are broadcast live from noon until 1 p.m. (Central time).

Each hour-long webinar includes nationally known and carefully selected presenters who discuss the most timely and relevant challenges faced by today's dairy producers. Past topics include finance, nutrition, milk quality, herd care, milk marketing and dairy policy.

There is no cost to register or to view the webinars. To sign up, go to and complete the brief questionnaire on your role in the industry. Once registered, an email reminder is sent with future webinar dates and times, and there is no need to register again.

If you are unable to attend a live webinar, they are recorded and can be accessed later on the Hoard's Dairyman website under the webinars link. All of the previous webinars have been archived and have been seen by over 31,000 viewers.

In addition, the webinar series is approved for continuing education units (CEU) by the American Registry of Professional Animal Scientists. Each hour-long webinar earns one CEU.

Hoard's Dairyman invites you to join us on the second Monday of each month - for just one hour. And you don't even have to leave the comfort of your home or office.
