Dairy Week Offers Salmonella Sessions Approved for Continuing Education Credits
Lenexa, Kan., (Sept. 23, 2020) – While 2020 may be a year remembered for opportunities lost, Dairy Herd Management is giving the dairy industry an opportunity to celebrate Sept. 28 – Oct. 3, with the launch of Dairy Week — an unprecedented offering of free information and resources dedicated to dairy producers and those that support them.
Presented by Elanco Rumensin and supported by other leading industry partners, Dairy Week will feature exclusive content across all Farm Journal platforms, including featured editorial in Dairy Herd Management, dairy-focused video broadcasts, how-to videos, live from Dairy Week virtual videos, dairy farmer podcast features, e-books, resources and product displays in a virtual showroom, as well as live and on-demand sessions and surprise celebrity guests.
One Dairy Week session has been approved for an hour of continuing education credit in jurisdictions that recognize RACE approval: Salmonella: A Look at Prevalence, Prevention & Treatment Protocol. The webinar will be presented for veterinarians and producers live on Sept. 29 at 1 p.m. CDT. Bovine veterinarians Dr. Kayla Clark and Dr. Kent Fenton will discuss how they are addressing Salmonella with dairy and beef producers through education, diagnostics, treatment and control measures. The increasing prevalence of Salmonella, particularly Salmonella Dublin, is a challenge to both dairy and beef producers, and veterinarians are stepping up to proactively address this infection.
“We are excited to provide access to timely and critical information about Salmonella with an added bonus of an hour of RACE credit,” said Rhonda Brooks, editor of Bovine Veterinarian. “Dr. Clark and Dr. Fenton have extensive experience in addressing the problem and will provide a valuable educational program. Dairy and beef producers are welcome to participate, in addition to practitioners.”
Dairy Week programming is free and begins at 9 a.m. CDT on Sept. 28 and will be offered each day through Oct. 3, with all content and the virtual showroom available on demand through Dec. 31, 2020. Topics include products beyond milk: cheese and butter, practical tips and advice on subjects such as forage quality and quantity, equipment insights on choppers, World Dairy Expo traditions and personalities and tips, insights and trends from industry experts. Sponsoring companies will have displays in the virtual showroom that feature new products and experts available for conversation.
“Of all the years we need education, networking and a sense of community — 2020 is the year,” said Anna-Lisa Laca, dairy editorial director and editor of Dairy Herd Management and MILK. “Dairy Week will be a virtual celebration of the dairy industry that encompasses all of the assets Farm Journal has to offer. Dairy will take center stage on ‘AgDay’ and ‘U.S. Farm Report’ TV and ‘AgriTalk’ radio. We’ve gathered the brightest experts in the dairy industry to help us gain insight to be successful in this wild market.”
Dairy Week is presented by Elanco Animal Health and supported by these industry partners: Cargill, Aspen Veterinary Resources, United Animal Health, Neogen, GEA, Lallemand Animal Nutrition, U.S. Vet Veterinary Products, Allflex Livestock Intelligence, Boumatic, Phibro Animal Health, Endovac Animal Health, VES, H&S, Caterpillar, Kemin, Quality Liquid Feeds, Calf-Tel and Zinpro Performance Minerals.
