I-29 Moo University is hosting a Fly Control webinar March 26, 2021 at 12:00 pm CST. Different kinds of flies can bother your cows, workers and neighbors. Stable flies bite, cause cows to bunch, reduce milk production, breed mainly in soiled cow and calf bedding, and pretty much stay on the premise. House flies breed in wetter manure, annoy people, and spread off premise to bother neighbors. Routine premise sprays and fogs can keep numbers of both kinds low in confined spaces, but targeted source reduction through debris management outdoors is a more sustainable approach. Listen to Dr. Moon discuss these issues and ask him questions.
The event is geared toward producers and industry involved in dairy beef production, but it is open to the public. The presenters at this year’s Dairy Beef Short Course are industry leaders who will provide insight into factors influencing dairy beef performance along with looking at the future of dairy beef production from a consumer lens and economic stand point.
Dairy Producers and Industry are invited to the I-29 MOO University Virtual Winter Workshop in partnership with Midwest Dairy & State Trade Associations being held on Tuesday, January 12, 2021 from 10 AM to 1:30 PM.
This workshop will focus on the Net Zero Initiative and what the impact will be for dairy producers. Attendees will gain knowledge through a hands-on virtual experience of how sustainability practices are being implemented on dairy farms and within dairy processing plants.
