You will have the option to join us online or listen to the experts over the phone.
Our new webinar format will allow producers and consumers of raw milk to listen to our raw milk experts, see related pictures and information on their computer, and ask our experts questions in real time about their concerns or on the topics of the discussion.
You will be able to choose to attend the webinars on goats or cows or our open forum where you ask the questions and direct the conversation, or attend all three for a wide ranging conversation on proper raw milk production, collection and monitoring, as well as safe handling.
