We aim to meet again in-person for the 2022 WCDS 40th Anniversary celebration

The 39th Western Canadian Dairy Seminar

March 8 - 12, 2021

Please join us online for the 39th Western Canadian Dairy Seminar. Spread out over 5 days (2-3 hours a day), the virtual (online) version of WCDS 2021 gives you the opportunity to hear from speakers presenting on a range of topics, including calf health, nutrition, and reproduction.

There will also be virtual tours of 3 progressive dairy operations, a student research presentation competition and, the always popular, producer panel. The 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.

This seminar is designed for people who want to improve their knowledge and decision-making abilities in dairy production and management. Dairy producers, technology transfer specialists, researchers and dairy service and supply representatives will find this seminar extremely valuable.

The organizers of the Western Canadian Dairy Seminar are proud to serve the dairy industry and look forward to joining you online at the seminar!
