Purdue dairy podcast switches to biweekly schedule
May 13, 2015
WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - "Purdue Dairy Digest," Purdue 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 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.
"Our goal is to be a resource not only for dairy farmers and others in the industry, but for the general public as well," Schutz said.
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're very excited that Tamilee will remain part of the team," Schutz said.
A number of other faculty and staff members from the College of Agriculture have also appeared on the podcast.
"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."
The podcast is free and available at http://www.ansc.purdue.edu/dd/, with an archive of all 245 past episodes. Listeners can also get the podcast on iTunes at https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/purdue-dary-digest/id379631180?mt=2.
