The Ohio Department of Agriculture (ODA) is moving toward the utilization of electronic Certificates of Veterinary Inspection (eCVI’s) in an effort to modernize the reporting of animal movements and disease. This change is necessary to increase efficiency in Ohio’s Animal Disease Traceability (ADT) efforts.
Dairy Health and Handling Certificate
The Ohio State University College of Food, Agriculture, and Environmental Sciences is holding a two day “Animal Health and Handling” certificate program for people interested in developing hands-on skills commonly used in the management, handling, and treatment of cattle. The program will be held on May 6th and 7th at the Wooster Campus of Ohio State University in Wooster, OH. This program will cover techniques such as dehorning, proper intravenous, intramuscular, and intramammary drug administration, restraint, calm animal handling, physical exam, and disease identification. Instructors will be Dr. Shaun Wellert, veterinarian at the OSU ATI, and Dr. Jessica Pempek, animal welfare specialist in the OSU department of Animal Science. The program is open to anyone 18 years of age and older. While the program is designed for people working directly with dairy cows, anybody with beef cattle or an interest in learning any of the above skills, is welcome.
If you have any questions, please contact Dr. Shaun Wellert at firstname.lastname@example.org, or 330-287-1352.

The Ohio Dairy Veterinarians was formed in July, 2000. Our mission is to provide continuing education to members, and to serve Ohio’s Dairy Industry. Continuing education is focused on areas of production medicine and delivered to the members via an annual meeting held the first weekend in January. They serve the industry in several ways, including participation in the Ohio Dairy Industry Forum, and the Ohio Department of Agriculture’s Cattle Health Advisory Committee. They also serve by working with The Ohio State University to encourage students to explore food animal practice and they serve as dairy industry educators to the people in their communities.
