· Reducing feed costs by limiting ‘shrink’ 

· Soybeans and ‘snaplage’ production 

· Finding success with high forage diets 

· Low-cost soil nutrient management 

· Maximizing forage yield and quality 

· Modern vaccination programs 

· The new Farm Bill and risk management 

· Other locally relevant topics.


Attendees will enjoy interactive presentations, discussions, with UVM Extensionfaculty and staff: Sid Bosworth, George Cook, Daniel Hudson, Tony Kitsos, and Pam Smith; Rick Kersbergen (UMaine Extension); Masoud Hashemi (UMass Extension); Carl Majewski (UNH Extension); and guest speakers will include Limin Kung, Jr., (U Delaware), Bill Kipp (Independent Dairy Consultants), and local vets.
