2020 10th Annual Organic Dairy Producers Conference

Was held on Wednesday, March 11, 2020 - 9:45 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at Vermont Technical College.

We started the day learning from and celebrating Dr. Sidney Bosworth’s extensive career as UVM Extension’s Forage Agronomist. Patrice Vincent from Belisle Solution Nutrition, Inc. and local farmers shared their approach to improving farm efficiency and profitability through optimizing on-farm forage production. After lunch Brad Heins from the University of Minnesota discussed research geared toward genetics, breeding, and raising youngstock on organic dairy farms. We also heard from a local farmer panel sharing their experiences combating low milk prices through diversification. We ended the day with Roy Desrochers, from UVM Extension, who lead sensory exercises and shared some results from his work with dairy that demonstrates the power of this work for researchers, producers, and consumers.
