A survey was conducted by University of California Cooperative Extension of past attendees of a dairy herdsman short course. The purpose was to determine to what degree course participants were applying course material to their respective position as dairy herdsmen. Overall, 41% of the attendees indicated that they had begun to apply information from the short course on the dairy farm for which they worked. Hispanic attendees appreciated simultaneous translations of presentations. Results from this survey demonstrate the need for a dairy herdsman short course in order for dairy employees to improve their practical skills in dairy herd management.
