The University of Minnesota Extension Dairy web site -- http://www.extension.umn.edu/dairy -- has been updated with the addition of a cow comfort quiz, "How comfortable are your cows?"
The quiz helps dairy farmers think about management practices on their farms that affect cow comfort. The quiz gives an automatic score so they can measure how they are doing.
The quiz was designed by Marcia Endres, U-M dairy management specialist.
On the website, the quiz is posted in the upper right hand corner, next to the Milk Quality Practices quiz, developed by Jeff Reneau, U-M dairy specialist, which has been posted for well over a year.
The website is updated monthly and will soon feature a list of upcoming dairy programs that will be held throughout the winter months.Source: U-M Extension
