June 21 Webinar Focuses on Lung Health in Heifers

Join Dairy Calf and Heifer Association (DCHA) for its next webinar – “Healthy Heifers have Healthy Lungs” – set for June 21, at 2 p.m. Central time (U.S./Canada). Lowell Midla, Merck Animal Health dairy technical services manager, is the presenter for this free, one-hour educational offering.

Heifers are the future of all dairy operations, with herd managers striving for healthy heifers on the day of calving. Most respiratory disease events occur prior to approximately 4 months of age. Therefore, preventing respiratory disease in young heifers is important to the future of any dairy farm business. This DCHA webinar will focus on how to preserve lung health in heifers less than 4 months old.

Dr. Midla, the webinar presenter, was born and raised on a farm in southwestern Pennsylvania where his family raised Polled Hereford beef cattle. He received his bachelor’s degree from the University of Pennsylvania in 1988 and his Veterinariae Medicinae Doctoris (VMD) degree, also from Penn, in 1992. Midla spent 24 years in clinical veterinary practice, working primarily with large animals, before joining the Merck Animal Health cattle technical services team in 2016.
