Herdsperson Training: Fresh Cow Assessment 

Physical examination and a basic knowledge of cattle anatomy, physiology, and behavior is key for dairy personnel to be able to understand "normal" and identify what may be a health concern.

This workshop will teach fresh cow assessment and monitoring practices to recognize and minimize fresh cow metabolic disease rates and improve fresh cow health.

This one-day in-person workshop is offered at different locations. It includes a scenario-based presentation, and hands-on demonstration and practice. Participants will leave with their own fresh cow monitoring kit and certificate of completion.

Performance Objectives:

  • Practice and understand basic cattle handling and behavior
  • Effectively monitor fresh cows, visually and with data
  • Perform a physical examination on cows
  • Assemble a fresh cow assessment toolkit

 * Limited to 10 participants *

Cost: $75 per person
