Calf & Heifer Congress 2014 - "Birth to Breeding"

December 10 - December 11, 2014

The conference will go beyond the management of the young calf this year. The timeline will extend from the calving event to breeding age. We have worked to incorporate expanded knowledge on common practices as well as venture into what research might tell us where replacement rearing and associated economics are going down the road. The format will be similar to previous years. A pre-conference evening dinner/presentation/panel discussion dedicated to automated or robotic calf feeder systems on December 10th will be followed by a full day of presentations and discussions on the 11th.

Registration includes one copy of the conference proceedings, breaks, meals and a new version of the popular "cow squeezie" momento.

The location will remain at the RIT Inn and Conference Center outside of Rochester, NY located off Exit 46 of the New York State Thruway. The space limitations encountered last year with the unexpected number of exhibitors has been addressed. All sponsor booths will be in well trafficked locations. Break times have been extended to 30 minutes. The lecture space will be enlarger. We will focus on providing even and adequate sound levels.

To encourage student participation we are again offering deeply discounted registration fees for our regional colleges with dairy programming. 

We hope that you will consider joining us for this informative conference!
