The workshops will cover economics of improving cow comfort, stall design and management, stocking density, heat abatement, and effects of cow comfort on production.

Each Cow Comfort Workshop is a day-long program held from 9:30 am to 3 pm. The program will be held in the classroom and on farm with a combination of presentations, farm walk-throughs, and discussion.
