MADISON, WI -- Make plans to attend the Dairy Calf and Heifer Association (DCHA) Annual Conference set for April 11-13, 2016 in Madison, WI.

The people working to raise dairy calves and heifers share unique challenges. Join like-minded individuals for educational presentations about challenges and opportunities in the calf and heifer raising sector along with an industry-specific trade show and farm tours.

Producer panels, presentations and breakout sessions will discuss housing, nutrition, disease management, antibiotic use and the profitability of raising dairy-beef. Other topics will include building client and team relationships and new aspects of animal welfare. A highlight of the conference will be updates on the DCHA's Gold Standards of calf and heifer raising.

The event will include on-farm sessions and tours, as well as post-conference tours and demonstrations at the Wisconsin Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory and the University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine.

This unique conference will give attendees opportunities to network with other calf and heifer raisers and service providers. Custom heifer raisers, dairy producers, veterinarians, nutritionists and anyone with a vested interest in raising calves is invited to attend.

Sponsorship opportunities for this can't miss event are available. Contact kanderson@calfandheifer.org to learn about sponsorship opportunities.
