This one-day workshop will focus on a number of "bugs" on your farm including silage fermentation, rumen microbes, udder health and mastitis, barn ventilation, spores in the milking parlor and more. We will conclude the day with a tour of Thiele Dairy, a dairy that recently expanded their milking herd, built a new milking parlor and put up new freestall barns.
