I-29 Moo University to Dairy Pest Control: Fun With Flies On April 17

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, Iowa State Extension Dairy Veterinarian.

This webinar 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 our the control methods used for each.  Come learn how can we use facts about flies to help us limit their populations.

Dr. Jardon graduated from the Iowa State College of Veterinary Medicine.   He completed his MPVM and Dairy Production Medicine Residency at UC-Davis.  He has been in private practice and industry for 35 years.  He has 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.  He had a role as a Dairy Technical Consultant with Elanco Animal Health in California for the last eleven years.  He is currently a Dairy Extension Veterinarian at Iowa State University.  A role he has had now for three months.
