This annual meeting gives attendees an opportunity to learn about specific topics that may benefit the dairy industry. This event is a collaboration between the University of Maine Cooperative Extension, the University of Vermont, and the University of New Hampshire.

  • Biosecurity goals, returning and new livestock.
  • Basic biosecurity for workers and visitors.
  • Animal health and disease monitoring.
