“I have successfully used the Dairy Farm Management Team program with many of my producers,” said Scott Gunderson, the Manitowoc County UW-Extension Dairy Agent and a facilitator for a number of teams. “The team partnerships built through this program can continue after the three meetings, as long as they wish or need, on their own terms to identify and implement new avenues to consider on the dairy farm.”
This program is made possible through the Value Added Dairy Initiative, which is funded by a Federal-State Marketing Improvement Program (FSMIP) grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Agricultural Marketing Service. In-kind contributions are provided by the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board and DATCP. The Dairy Farm Management Team program is a joint effort of DATCP; the Wisconsin Department of Commerce Dairy 2020 program; the University of Wisconsin-Extension Dairy Team, Farm and Risk Management Team (FARM), and Center for Dairy Profitability; and Wisconsin Technical Colleges.
