The 2022 Dairy Seminar is Returning to In-Person!

The 40th Western Canadian Dairy Seminar is March 8 - 11, 2022 at the Cambridge Hotel in Red Deer, AB

Please join us in-person to celebrate the 40th annual Western Canadian Dairy Seminar. Our Advisory Committee is hard at work planning a safe return to in-person events and will be following all AHS guidelines. The WCDS is a place for our industry to gather, learn and network and above all else, we aim to protect our community.

For the 40th anniversary of the WCDS we are celebrating dairy research in Canada by providing an all-Canadian speaker line-up. Our speakers will present on a range of topics, including nutrition, calf management and reproduction and the program will include the producer panel and student research competition. We will also be bringing back the Exhibition Hall, featuring the latest offers from our industry sponsors.

This seminar is designed for people who want to improve their knowledge and decision-making abilities in dairy production and management and for those looking to network in the dairy industry.

The organizers of the Western Canadian Dairy Seminar are proud to serve the dairy industry and look forward to connecting again in-person in 2022!
