Environmental stewardship classes offered June 1-2
May 7, 2010 - - Two free environmental stewardship classes are being offered
by the California Dairy Quality Assurance Program (CDQAP) on June 1 and June 2
in Hilmar. These will be the last water quality classes offered by CDQAP this
spring. For producers interested in certifying their facility, the same person
from the dairy facility must attend all six hours of water quality education.
The Environmental Short Course is being taught by Dr. Deanne Meyer, livestock waste management specialist at UC Davis. The sessions will be from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Hilmar Cheese Company visitor center, 9001 North Lander Avenue, Hilmar. Producers who have attended previous CDQAP water quality courses and want to check on whether they have completed enough hours may call (530) 574-0524 to verify their status.
