Dairy Management Pilot Program Applicants Wanted

25 spots remain for dairy producers to participate in the Dairy Farm Management Team program, which is a collaboration of several state agencies and institutions to provide expert advice and analysis with the goal of improving dairy farming. The pilot program brings dairy farmers together with teams consisting of lenders, agronomists, nutritionists, and other experts to provide individualized, farm-specific support and advice. The pilot program is a cost-share that covers up to $2,000 of various non-capital costs, including milk quality, veterinary testing, consultant fees, and other related activities. Participating farmers contribute 10% of the cost.
