Posted on September 24, 2019 in Starting Strong - Calf Care

By Dr. Jennifer Van Os, University of Wisconsin-Madison animal welfare extension specialist
University of Wisconsin-Madison researchers and extension educators are conducting a study on animal-care practices for preweaned dairy calves. They are seeking U.S. dairy producers or calf raisers, along with bovine veterinary practitioners, to participate in their online survey. Your participation will help them better serve the dairy community with our future research and extension programs. The survey should take no longer than 15 minutes to complete on a computer, tablet or smartphone.
