Cow Comfort Workshops

For Freestalls and Tie Stalls

Presented by Cornell CALS PRO-DAIRY and Cornell Cooperative Extension

Cow Comfort Regional Workshops are an educational program for farmers, employees and agriservice professionals who work directly with dairy cows. The workshops will cover economics of improving cow comfort, stall design and management, stocking density, heat abatement, and effects on production. 

Each Cow Comfort Workshop is a day-long program held from 9:30 a.m to 3 p.m. The program will be held on-farm with a combination of presentations, demonstrations, farm walk-throughs and discussion.  

Each site is managed independently and registration fees may apply.  Contact the site coordinator for more information.
