Cornell Lecture: Sustainability in Dairy Production

There have been many hearty and intellectual virtual offerings through Cornell’s various virtual platforms – eCornell and Cornell Alumni.

This week we recommend Sustainability in Dairy Production, with Professor Daryl Nydam of the College of Veterinary Medicine.

Cows in field

Professor Daryl Nydam discusses the challenges of climate change, habitat preservation and healthful food production through a veterinary sustainability lens. Professor Nydam’s research interests are at the intersection of production animal agriculture and public health at the population level – with an emphasis on dairy cattle. On-going projects are in the areas of transition cow health and performance, calf infectious diseases (especially zoonoses), and milk quality. He teaches a variety of bovine herd health and epidemiology classes as well as provide consulting and clinical service for the dairy industry.

The lecture runs about an hour and is available for streaming here:
