The annual traveling "dairy cow college" made its first stop in Devils Lake to speak with local dairy farmers. Representatives from NDSU and the Midwest Dairy Association are going around the state discussing the challenges dairy producers face in North Dakota.

Ag experts shared the latest innovations in the dairy ag industry and spoke about the perception of dairy farmers, which experts say has suffered. They're hoping producers can help set the record straight about the treatment of animals on local farms. Gerald Stokka, NDSU Livestock Stewardship, "Most of us that have animals use a level of care and what I would call stewardship toward those animals so that those animals can live as healthy and productive a life as they can." Dairy ag experts have visited three other cities this week with their cow college and they'll finish their tour tomorrow in Valley City.
