Let’s face it, the dairy business can get messy, but there’s no reason producers can’t turn poo into profit. Upcoming meetings throughout Kentucky aim to show dairy cattle managers how to do just that.
The University of Kentucky College of Agriculture, Food and Environment is joining the Kentucky Dairy Development Council, the Division of Compliance Assistance, Soil Conservation Districts of Kentucky and the Kentucky Farm Bureau to present regional dairy meetings. The meetings will focus on understanding Kentucky agricultural water quality plans and nutrient management plans, how to be prepared when a state inspector arrives and management practices that will increase milk quality.
These meetings and the lunch provided are free to any Kentucky dairy farmer. RSVP to Meredith Scales at 859-516-1966 prior to the meeting. Contact your local Cooperative Extension office or local KDDC consultant for more information. Please arrive 15 minutes prior to the meeting to register.
Upcoming meetings will all be from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. local time:
