Industry Event: I-29 Moo University webinar on dairy pest control

April 17 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

The I-29 Moo University 2024 Dairy Webinar Series continues Wednesday, April 17 from 12 noon to 1 p.m. CST. The webinar will feature a discussion on fly control with Dr. Phillip Jardon.

Discussion will cover the four main flies that are considered pests on dairies – house flies, stable flies, horn flies, and face flies.

“These flies all have some things in common but there are big differences in where they reproduce and where they eat that guide the control methods used for each,” according to Fred Hall, dairy specialist with Iowa State University Extension and Outreach. “Join us to learn how we can use facts about flies to limit their populations.”

Dr. Jardon graduated from the Iowa State College of Veterinary Medicine. He completed his Master of Preventive Veterinary Medicine (MPVM) and Dairy Production Medicine Residency at UC-Davis.

Jardon has been in private practice and industry for 35 years with particular interest in transition cow diseases – a passion he has had since working on milk fever on his parent’s dairy for his seventh-grade science fair project. Dr. Jardon worked as a Dairy Technical Consultant with Elanco Animal Health in California for the last eleven years and is currently a Dairy Extension Veterinarian at ISU.

There is no fee to participate in the webinar; however, registration is required at least one hour before the webinar. Register online at https://go.iastate.edu/FLYCONTROL24.
