Calf Barn Ventilation Program with Fogging Demonstrations
July 27, 2021: North Lawrence; July 28, 2021: Carthage
With a Northern New York Agricultural Development Program (NNYADP) grant, Cornell Cooperative Extension Dairy Specialists Lindsay Ferlito and Casey Havekes are assessing and troubleshooting barn ventilation systems and their impact on the health of pre-weaned calves on farms in northern New York in 2021. The researchers will demonstrate barn fogging, a process that makes air flow visible as part of calf barn ventilation and calf health workshops on regional farms on July 27 in North Lawrence and July 28 in Carthage. Registration is free, but space is limited. Contact 607-592-0290 or email@example.com.
