In addition to six DairyProfit Seminars at the 2014 Empire Farm Days, there will be a special Tuesday-only session on practices to encourage sound feet and legs in dairy cows. Empire Farm Days is scheduled for August 5-7 at Rodman Lott & Son Farms in Seneca Falls, New York.
At 1 p.m. on August 5 in the DairyProfit Center, dairyman Brad Cates of Co-Vale Farms, Preble, New York; hoof trimmer Joyce Thomas of Rome, New York; and recently retired Holstein classifier Dick Wright of Stanley, New York, will share their insights for a practical understanding of maintaining healthy hooves and legs in dairy cows.
The seminar is co-sponsored by the New York Holstein Association and is free to attend. Admission to Empire Farm Days is free, and parking is $10.
