AGRONOMY PLUS FOR FARMERS & SERVICE PROVIDERS
Time: 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Location: Morrisville, VT
Description: Facing low profit margins heading into the new year, many dairy farmers are looking for ways to survive--and thrive--in these tough economic times. University of Vermont (UVM) Extension is sponsoring a day-long meeting at six locations for farm operators and managers to help them improve profitability in the new dairy economy. Sessions will cover a diverse range of topics including soybean and snaplage production, successful
implementation of high-forage diets, maximizing forage yield and quality, modern vaccination programs and ways to control high feed costs and reduce feed losses on the farm.
