purduePurdue Extension’s long-running dairy podcast, has switched from a weekly to a biweekly schedule, with new episodes presented on the first and third Wednesday of each month. The podcast serves as a resource not only for dairy farmers and others in the industry, but also to the general public.

The next new episode is set to run May 20. Listeners to the podcast should continue to expect timely, informative and entertaining commentary on a wide variety of topics related to the dairy industry, said Mike Schutz, professor of animal sciences and one of the podcast creators.

The podcast series began in 2010. The primary contributors have been Tamilee Nennich, a former Extension dairy specialist now working as a dairy nutrition specialist with Famo Feeds in Freeport, Minnesota, along with Phil Reid, distance education coordinator, and Schutz.

“We continue to cover a wide range of subjects, from animal health and nutrition to agricultural economics and consumer issues,” Schutz said. “We try to stay current with whatever is happening in the industry and the marketplace.”
