Illini DairyNet

Dr. Allen Young
USU Extension Dairy Specialist

In honor of our speaker for the Utah Dairy Seminars, Mike Hutjens, this month�s web site of the month will be the University of Illinois Dairy Net site. The URL is:

The site contains numerous articles on feeding, reproduction, health and other management topics of interest to dairy farmers. Their newsletter is also included on this site. I was particularly interested in their research project to assess the needs of the dairy industry in Illinois. You might be interested in checking out the classes they offer over the Internet. Dr. Hutjens was one of the first people to offer a dairy nutrition course using this form of media. It has now expanded to 5 courses that are available from the University of Illinois. There is a little bit of something for everyone at this site, and therefore we are highlighting it this month. ©
