It was very useful information I found during this course. Please let me know any course related to dairy farming in future. I will be interested.

Good information from a mass-production standpoint, may be adaptable to fit small-scale family farms. Overall pretty good.

Overall the course is very good. Great information throughout...
The course could be better if a couple of lectures could be made more practical- Nutrition one has a lot of percents thrown around. The Economics/Marketing one has, what I feel, the instructor reading the script in a monotone with the ends of sentences fading off.
More should be covered about diseases and how to prevent and fight them- Mastitis is an important disease and was covered well by the professor.

Thank you for this great course, however, I was disappointed to learn that during the entire course, particularly the heat detection segment, the use of pedometers and other technology to assist with heat detection was not mentioned. also that there are computerized management systems that make the life of the farmer much easier. I know that the dairy farm at Penn State uses Afimilk systems to collect data and to manage the data in order to take care of heat detection and manage herd health. Thank you

Some things are a little boring but you have a good overview of diary cows when the course is completed.

Lots of information, but could be presented in a more learner-friendly manner. Not a lot of information for someone who wishes to learn about organic/holistic dairy management.

Good course, teaches how are actually big dairy enterprises, in a country with unlimited resources, it`s not usefull in develeping countries, and doesn`t teach how to understand the way to start a business and the differences in small, medium, big and gigantic business in diary production. Aren`t there any small diary farm en USA ? It`s not feaseble to start a small diary business in USA? How different in costs and profit are diary in different countries?, How USA government helps diary business in USA? Thanks for your teaching and Sharing your experiences.

Bad videos. Reading material should be summarised
