Cornell Cooperative Extension’s Southwest and Northwest New York Dairy, Livestock, and Field Crops Programs, with Cornell PRO-DAIRY, are hosting a free webinar focused on heat stress in dairy cattle at 12:30 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday.

The webinar will be in both English and Spanish.

The recent heat wave has been felt by humans and cows alike. Heat stress is an important management consideration for the health, profitability, and efficiency of a herd. The upcoming webinars will share information on key indicators of heat stress in dairy cattle and strategies dairy producers can use on their farms to mitigate its effects.

The English speaking webinar will be led by Alycia Drwencke and Margaret Quaassdorff, dairy management specialists with Cornell Cooperative Extension. The Spanish speaking webinar will be led by Libby Eiholzer, bilingual dairy specialist with Cornell Cooperative Extension. Both webinars will be moderated by Kathy Barrett, with the Cornell PRO-DAIRY program.
