Speakers at the workshop include two of RAWMI’s board members—Dr. Cat Berge and Mark McAfee—as well as listed RAWMI dairyman Edwin Shank of The Family Cow and Ernest Hovingh, a veterinarian, field investigator, and researcher at Penn State.
Session topics include: Protecting Your Herd from Disease; The Bad Bugs: Who, How, What, and Where?; In-House Milk Microbiology 101; Keeping Raw Milk Safe and Hygienic; and A View from the Trenches: A Personal Journey Learning about Raw Milk Safety.
The Penn State Veterinary Extension Team has recently worked with almost 40 permitted raw milk producers in Pennsylvania, and some of the findings of this project will be presented.
This workshop will be of interest to raw milk producers, educators, regulators, and others interested in the production and sale of raw milk.
