Large Dairy Herd Management (LDHM) e-Book and Conference Update

Join us on Tuesday, July 19 * 4:00 - 5:00 pm in Salt Palace Convention Center, 150 B/C

The ADSA� Foundation is in the midst of developing and publishing the Third Edition of Large Dairy Herd Management as an e-Book. The new comprehensive international reference is targeted for practicing dairy management professionals, progressive farmers, and upper division university students studying dairy science and management. It is written in a practical application style, yet reflects the scientific rigor of the J. Dairy Science. The LDHM Conference was held last May.

This session is follow-up to that conference to provide an update about the e-Book content and progress towards publication. The completely new content, designed to allow for convenient updating will be sold at ADSA member, non-member, and student rates with electronic and print-on-demand options.

Release is anticipated in Spring 2017. You can partner with The ADSA Foundation. Nonprofit organizations, companies, and individuals are invited to join as co-sponsors of the e-Book at any time. For information about sponsorship and the long-lasting worldwide recognition please contact the ADSA Foundation at [email protected]
