UVM Extension's Northwest Crops & Soils Program and NOFA-Vermont's Organic Dairy and Livestock Technical Assistance program invite you to attend the 2015 Vermont Organic Dairy Producers Conference.

This year we're trying something new! Join us for farmer-to-farmer sessions we’re calling “The Real Deal.” Certified organic farmers will share their challenges and successes on topics including robotic milking systems, transitioning to no grain feeding, and considerations when purchasing equipment and feed.

Our keynote speaker is Dr. Roger Moon, a veterinary entomologist at the University of Minnesota who has been conducting research on fly management in the organic dairy herd.

Of course, the conference wouldn’t be complete without our farmer panel, this year focusing on feeding strategies for organic cattle.
