Calf Care Connection

Dairy calf wellbeing and health will be discussed during the 2019 PDPW Calf Care Connection® workshops. This program is designed for calf care professionals, herd managers, veterinarians and others that work with calves. Presented on three dates in different locations, the one-day workshops will feature interactive and hands-on sessions showcasing research to safeguard calves from pneumonia, diagnose both clinical and subclinical cases, and identify lung lesions in calves during a necropsy. Participants will learn more about the most common calf-mortality causes and see both normal and abnormal calf anatomy in separate necropsies. In addition, attendees will learn about social housing strategies that minimize injury and illness while maximizing calf performance and welfare – and consumer acceptance.

Cytologic Evaluation

This intermediate-level cytology course will include a presentation on optimal methods for collecting, preparing, and submitting cytologic specimens. A second presentation will focus on core principles of cytologic evaluation and interpretation for lymph nodes and masses of the skin/subcutis. The laboratory session allows you and a partner to examine cytologic specimens from dogs and cats at a two-headed microscope. Classic and challenging samples will be included. While you may not always be able to make a definitive cytologic diagnosis, the course should provide you with tools to narrow your list of differentials and plan your next steps for the patient.
