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.
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:
