We have partnered with TK Virtual to provide a high quality and interactive virtual platform. Spread out over 5 days (2-3 hours a day), the virtual (online) version of WCDS 2021 gives you the opportunity to hear about recent research and new technology from speakers presenting on a range of topics, including calf health, nutrition, genetics and reproduction. There will also be virtual tours of 3 progressive dairy farms across Western Canada, a live student research presentation competition and, the always popular, producer panel. The fully interactive virtual trade show area gives you the chance to connect with our industry sponsors as well as discuss the latest dairy-related research in the virtual research poster display section.

 

Registration is just $50 and includes all presentations, the farm tours as well as access to the virtual trade show area. Can't make the presentation time? Registration will also allow you to access recordings of all presentations.
