Resources & Research

The NE-DBIC has a new website:

Please visit the new site for on-going updates to our grants, resources, and blog posts.

Dairy farmers and processors can access free resources through NE-DBIC funded research studies, UVM Extension, and our Dairy Business Innovation Initiative counterparts.  

National Dairy Business Innovation Initiatives 

The USDA funds three additional Dairy Business Innovation initiatives. You can find resources and information about these initiatives on their websites. 

UVM Extension Dairy Herd Management Technical Assistance

With support from NE-DBIC, dairy farm owners and managers can now receive on-farm technical assistance through University of Vermont (UVM) Extension. 

UVM Extension’s team of technical assistance specialists provide support in: 

  • Milk quality 
  • Grazing and pasture management 
  • Dairy nutrition 
  • Animal husbandry 
  • Animal housing and facilities 
  • Personnel management 

These dairy support services are available across Vermont, and UVM Extension will engage with other regional Extension opportunities to share knowledge with farmers outside of Vermont. 

Research Studies

At NE-DBIC, we’ve funded a variety of research on dairy distribution, market conditions, and marketing to support dairy businesses throughout the region.  Dairy farmers and processors can access the research and resulting resources for free:
