Join us for a hands-on dairy herd health workshop hosted by Cedar Mountain Farm and led by veterinarian Dr. Dayna Locitzer, DVM.
With a mix of time in the classroom, on pasture, and in the barn, we’ll discuss the many facets of herd health: prevention, detection, and treatment of disease, a cow’s daily time budget, physical exam of the cow, practice of veterinary care techniques, and calving and when to intervene.
Co-owners Kerry Gawalt and Stephen Leslie established Cedar Mountain Farm in 1999. The farm includes a pasture-based dairy that supplies milk to Cobb Hill Cheese, and produces year-round vegetables, beef, and raw milk. Cedar Mountain practices rotational grazing and agroforestry to enhance the health of their herd, soils, and land.
Dr. Dayna Locitzer has over 10 years’ experience working with pasture-based dairies in the Northeast. She currently works as a large animal veterinarian at Green Mountain Bovine Clinic in Chesterfield, N.H. and worked on organic dairy farms in New York’s Hudson Valley for 6 years before starting veterinary school.
This workshop is free and lunch will be provided.
