Well its been in the works for a little while, but Bridgewater Dairy has been slowly planning to implement a strategy to train and retrain every employee on the facility on the best practices when moving cows, or just working around cows. Dr. Greg Crosley of Countryside Vet in Michigan is helping us embark on this project. Beginning with a small video presentation, and ending with a verbal Q & A with the employee's and Dr. Crosley.
Our plan is to train every new employee with this video, and schedule through out the year a couple of different training programs. Animal care, Animal Health, and other subjects will be reviewed in this setting once or twice a year. We are excited about this new training, not only how it benefits the animals, but also how it benefits thcommunication among our employee's.
