Event description

Description

Join us for a tour of two large-scale dairies in Northeast Wisconsin on Wednesday, August 8th!

Both farms, one a CAFO and the second farm with about 500 cows, will host us and discuss their different approaches to grazing their heifers. Many farmers think you can only graze heifers at a small-scale. Come and learn why these large farms chose to raise their heifers on grass and what benefits they are seeing from it.

The tour will be by coach bus and we will meet at a Park and Ride in Sun Prairie at 9:30am. We anticipate to be back at the Park and Ride at 6:30pm. Lunch will be at one of the farms. We also are inviting UW-Extension experts along to discuss reproduction and nutrition for dairy heifers.

More updates will be added as we finalize details.

The coach bus is being sponsored by WI SARE. A $10 registration fee is to cover the cost of the lunch.

Please contact Marie Raboin, Dane County Land & Water Resources, for questions: 608-224-3742 or Raboin.Marie@countyofdane.com
