Nursing a down cow is challenging and stressful - it can be difficult to provide a good nursing environment, know when to call for help or decide if euthanasia is the best option. 

To help you make better decisions about managing down cows and improve their welfare, Murray Dairy is hosting a half day workshop with:

› Guidance on making timely decisions to nurse or euthanase cows. 
› Practical session on setting up a dedicated down cow nursing area. 
› Discussion on how to humanely lift and move down cows. 
› Fact sheets and videos showing best practices for nursing down cows.
