There are several upcoming sessions of the Winter Dairy Management program coming up this month in New York. The theme of the program is “Managing Your Dairy For Resiliency.” The program, coordinated by PRO-DAIRY and Cornell Cooperative Extension, will be presented by local dairy producers.

From reproduction to lighting to cow comfort, the wide-ranging program will offer practical ideas to take advantage of a turn-around in the economy and demand for milk.

The program will run from approximately 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., depending on the location. Borrower Training Credits for the Farm Service Agency are available.
