Cold Weather Calf Care

We're deep into winter. Hear how Stacy Jauquet at Jauquet's Hillview Dairy, LLC of Luxemburg keeps her babies healthy and thriving in winter.

"Our goal here is to have a zero percent death loss. We've accomplished that for the last three years. I believe we accomplished that by staying very clean in our maternity, outside in our hutches, washing everything from our calf hutches to our feeding equipment repeatedly, and just having a good sanitation program." -Stacy Jauquet, Jauquet's Hillview Dairy, LLC

UW-Madison Extension Implements Regional Agriculture Staffing Strategy in Northeast Wisconsin Counties

The University of Wisconsin-Division of Extension Agriculture Institute is moving to a structure of having regional educators across the state. Northeast Wisconsin is one of the first regions to implement this staffing strategy. Counties involved in this transition include Brown, Door, and Kewaunee Counties. Regional educators will provide research-based education to dairy, and crop producers by assessing the needs of farmers across their region and designing and delivering educational programming and services to meet these needs.
