DGA/RMA Field Day | Tomandl Farm, 7234 Gad Rd, Medford, WI 54451
What makes dairy grazing profitable? Should you buy Pasture, Rangeland, Forage (PRF) insurance; and if so, when?
Join us for this series of field days to learn how successful dairy farmers in the Upper Midwest incorporate grazing to improve profitability. Learn some surprising facts about PRF insurance. Dairies that include a grazing component are diverse, and there are many pathways to profitability. These walks will highlight results of a study of dairy farmers in Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, and Wisconsin. The project is sponsored by Green Lands Blue Waters and Dairy Grazing Apprenticeship, with funding support from the USDA Risk Management Agency.
