Our webinars are approved for continuing education units (CEU) from the American Registry of Professional Animal Scientists. Each hour-long webinar will earn one CEU. There is no cost to register or view the webinars. Once registered, you will receive e-mail reminders of the webinar date and time. If unable to attend a webinar, they will be recorded and can be accessed later.
Hosted by the energetic Mike Hutjens of the University of Illinois, each one-hour webinar will include nationally known and carefully selected presenters who will discuss the most timely and relevant topics and challenges faced by dairy producers today. Topics will cover input costs, finance, nutrition, milk quality, herd management, and milk marketing and dairy policy plans. All of the webinar topic areas are not finalized; this will allow for the addition of time-sensitive topics to be added. Your suggestions on topics are certainly welcome. The webinars are designed to be interactive. If you have questions during the presentation, they can be typed directly to the presenter, and everyone can learn from the response and discussion. Polls can be conducted during the webinar to give the presenter a sound understanding of his or her audience demographics.
