Dairy Cattle Welfare Council

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.

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