Dairy Cows Captivate Audience for Final 2015 PVM Family Program Series Talk

December 11, 2015

Submitted by Adrianne Fisch, PVM Engagement Office

The Office of Engagement’s PVM Family Program Series wrapped up 2015 with a session about cows by Dr. Jonathan Townsend, assistant professor of dairy production medicine and director of extension programs, Thursday, December 3.  The well-attended session, which was free and open to the public, focused on dairy cows and what it takes to keep them healthy.  The session concluded with a short activity that taught attendees about how much milk, ice cream, butter and cheese a cow can make.  Attendees walked away from the presentation with a better understanding and appreciation for our bovine friends.

Other sessions in the PVM Family Program Series so far this school year have included Dr. Ewan Wolff’s presentation about dinosaurs and Dr. Micha Simons’ bandaging lab.  The series is designed for families with young children who are interested in learning more about the veterinary profession. The programs are geared toward children in grades K-4 but older children are welcome to attend. We look forward to our 2016 sessions and hope your family can attend!  Click here to view a complete list of the 2015-2016 PVM Family Program Series sessions.  If you have any questions, contact Adrianne Fisch (fischa@purdue.edu).
