Over the last several weeks, the dairy industry has experienced increased turmoil. We’ve heard about milk being dumped, grocery stores limiting milk purchases, dairy markets sliding, and processors asking farms for reduced milk production.  What is going on and what can we do?

The “Crop Update & Feeding Byproducts” webinar hosted by UW-Madison Extension, will be the second webinar in the “Farm Management Through a Crisis: Part of the Supporting Farmers During Challenging Times Series” and will discuss the current cropping situation in Eastern WI, a tool for utilizing milk as a feed source, and nutritional and sourcing issues related to feeding by-products.

April 23 Agenda:

  • Eastern WI Crop Update, Extension Agriculture Educators: Scott Reuss, Marinette County; Joe Zimbric, Dodge & Fond du Lac Counties; John Thompson, Winnebago County; and Kevin Jarek, Outagamie County
