Dairy Cattle Welfare Council (DCWC)

The purpose of the Dairy Cattle Welfare Council (DCWC) is to promote dairy cattle welfare by bringing together dairy farmers, veterinarians, consultants, universities, and the dairy community to develop best recommended practices with focus on animal well-being, management, husbandry, animal-people interaction, health, and productivity.

Our mission is to advance the care and treatment of dairy cattle by bringing the dairy industry together to inform, educate, and support continuous improvement of animal well-being on dairy farms.

The DCWC was formally established in 2016 as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization for educational and scientific purposes.
