Cornell CALS PRO-DAIRY presents Cow Comfort Workshops


The 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 facility assessment.

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.
