RAWMI board member Dr. Cat Berge is presenting a free 20-minute webinar entitled “Manage Your Calves!” Tuesday morning (8am PDT / 11am EDT). While this isn’t a RAWMI event, all are welcome to attend the event.
This webinar will focus on:
- Optimum colostrum management
- Milk or milk replacer feed
- Grain or hay
- Gradual timely weaning
Many dairy cows never reach their full milk production potential due to failures in management and feeding in pre-weaned heifers. Young heifers are the future of the dairy herd, ensuring that their health is in optimal condition results in cost-effective growth.
Dr. Anna Catharina Berge, Berge Veterinary Consulting BVBA will discuss each of these issues and advise on the best practical solutions.
Join us on Monday, November 16th, at the end of this year’s annual Weston A. Price Foundation conference, for the 2015 Raw Milk Symposium.
The event will be held live in Anaheim, California, but don’t worry if you can’t attend in person; the symposium will be live-streamed free online!
There are four talks scheduled for the symposium, including one by RAWMI chairman Mark McAfee:
- Why Raw Milk? – Sally Fallon Morell, MA

- Risk Beyond the Numbers: Understanding Data, Gaps, and Assumptions Bridging Them – Peg Coleman
- Building, Managing, Marketing & Sustaining a Raw Milk Micro-Dairy – Charlotte Smith

If you have a question about raw milk, chances are it’s in this new book! We’ve gone through the book and think it’s great. And we’re in good company: Joel Salatin’s comment was “Gumpert churns out every answer to every conceivable question in the raw milk controversy. A delightful must-read.”
David Gumpert—a member of RAWMI’s Executive Advisory Council—has previously authored The Raw Milk Revolution: Behind America’s Emerging Battle over Food Rights and Life, Liberty, and The Pursuit of Food Rights: The Escalating Battle over Who Decides What We Eat.
