Learn from the Vet: Dairy Cows
March 14 & 15, 2014, 10 am – 4 pm
Join veterinarian, Dr. Hue Karreman, for this 2-day class that will empower livestock farmers to become close observers of their animals and develop disease prevention and health-promoting strategies that improve animal health and business performance.

Participants will leave with a strong foundation in organic livestock health care strategies and farmers transitioning to organic will quickly feel at ease regarding animal health issues.
