Live webinar

Join us for a live webinar on June 1st, 2023, at noon (ET), where we will discuss the challenges and opportunities of managing transition cows on automated milking systems (AMS).

Advancements in technology have made AMS an attractive option for dairy farmers, but it's crucial to understand the implications of using these systems when managing transition cows.

We're excited to welcome Pete Maslyn from Hemdale Farms and dairy consultant Todd Ward to share their experience and high-quality information on managing transition cows on AMS. Pete will discuss his experience managing transition cows on the farm using AMS, while Todd will explore the challenges and opportunities of managing transition cows on AMS.

During the webinar, we'll delve into how AMS can be adjusted to address specific concerns related to transition cow's individual needs.

The webinar is free and open to anyone interested in learning more about managing transition cows in AMS. After the presentations, we'll have an open Q&A session where attendees can ask their questions about this important topic.

Registration is required and will be accepted until May 31st at 11:59 pm ET. Participants will receive the Zoom webinar invitation after their registration is confirmed. A recording of the webinar will also be made available to registered participants.

The Challenges and Opportunities of managing transition cows on AMS is a collaborative extension program of Michigan State University Extension and the Cornell Cooperative Extension SWNY Dairy, livestock, and field crops program.
