The purpose of this conference is to:

? Increase knowledge or understanding of improved dairy and beef cattle animal handling practices.

? Expand awareness and improve understanding about the science and politics of farm animal care here in the Upper Midwest, throughout the United States and around the world.

? Build new or existing partnerships between dairy and beef producers, veterinarians, related agencies and organizations to address the emerging agriculture policy issue of animal welfare in Wisconsin.

? Identify and connect key individuals interested in addressing future educational/policy efforts related to animal care or welfare.

Extension people work in partnership with people in county, state, federal, and tribal governments; community organizations; volunteers; business; and industry. With faculty in every county and on UW-campuses, Cooperative Extension gives Wisconsin citizens quick and convenient access to University research and knowledge.
