DairyCast update for January 26, 2010, Why do some cows thrive and others crash?

Well, I am finishing up the chores then heading off to San Antonio for hopefully some sunshine, warmer weather and a great education. I hope that you have made your plans to be with us this week for the Cattle Industry Annual Convention and NCBA Trade Show.

This year’s event looks to be exceptional with several new features and great educational opportunities. If you’re going to be there this week, let’s catch up for a few moments and talk about how we at DairyCast can better help you. Just drop me a note.

If you won’t be able to get away from the cows this week, I certainly understand. So don’t worry, we will bring you the conversations and latest information on industry issues and emerging technologies right here at DairyCast.
