Cornell is offering a two-part online program that will be presented in separate English and Spanish sessions specifically designed for your personnel who are responsible for feeding.

The Online Feeder School is a two-part educational program for farmers, employees, and agriservice professionals who work as or with the feeder – the person responsible for mixing TMR, maintaining bunk silos, and communicating feed issues with other farm staff. It will cover monitoring dry matter, feed bunk management, bunk face management, and troubleshooting mixer wagons.

This program is available at no cost, thanks to support from generous industry sponsors but pre-registration is required.
