Description

WHAT IT'S ABOUT

The Bedding Management Conference, formally the Sand Solutions Conference, will provide producers extensive education on improving cow comfort and overall herd health. This conference's sessions will discuss topics such as dairy management, variances in sand lane clean up, and systems for all size dairies, including small scale systems. In addition, there will be sessions that focus on topics such as bedding options, lying time on different bedding material, and ROI from a Bedding Dryer. Bedding selection plays an important role in dairy management as it can increase milk production and overall producer profitability. Tours feature two dairies in the local area.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

  • Dairy producers who want to improve cow comfort and overall herd health

  • Engineers and dairy consultants who work with producers on sand and manure handling systems

  • NRCS and university extension personnel
