World Dairy Expo has become well respected as the premier dairy cattle show, and also as a source for tapping into the latest research and cutting-edge technologies for the dairy industry. Many of the Expo Seminars and the Dairy Forage Seminars qualify attendees for continuing education credits. The American Registry of Professional Animal Scientists (ARPAS) and the American Association of Veterinary State Boards’ Registry of Approved Continuing Education (RACE) are issuing additional credits for their members who attend the seminars.

All fifteen of the Expo Seminars and the Dairy Forage Seminars are qualified for one continuing education credit for ARPAS members. In addition, the Expo Seminar series is qualified for the RACE program credits. Members of ARPAS and vets will want to take advantage of these continuing education opportunities by attending World Dairy Expo.

 

2012 Expo Seminar topics include “Building a Strong Management Team, ” “Avoiding Drug Residues in the Dairy Industry, ” “Building U.S. Agricultural Exports: One BRIC at a Time,” “Planning for Change: Transitioning the Family Farm,” “How Many Replacement Heifers Does Your Dairy Need?” “Making Sense of the Global Dairy Markets,” “The Effect of Risk on Dairy Farm Management” and “Should you Treat Them or Should You Eat Them? How to Improve Your Mastitis Treatments and Maintain Healthy Cows”. The Expo Seminars will be held in the Mendota 2 meeting room in the Exhibition Hall.

 

The Dairy Forage Seminars topics include “How Low Can You Go with Protein in Dairy Cattle Diets,” “Corn Silage Quality Varies from Field To Field,” “Silage Inoculants Seem to Affect Animal Performance as Well as Crop Fermentation,” “The Economics of Feeding Dairy Cattle with High-Priced Forage and Grain,” “Using Ruminal Digestibility Data to Improve Intake, Feed Efficiency or Diet Costs for Lactating Cows,” and “Using Plant Analysis to Diagnose Alfalfa Nutrient Needs.” These seminars will be presented on stage in the east end of the Arena Building where attendees may also view the winning forage samples on display.
