On-Line Course Offered for Pasture-Based Dairy, Livestock Farmers
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 08/04/2016

The Wisconsin School for Beginning Dairy and Livestock Farmers is offering its first-ever online course on pasture-based production and business management. Coordinators say the online sessions cover the same curriculum as the WSBDF pasture-based dairy and livestock seminar offered on-campus.

Online learning lets students enroll at any time and take the course from any location, at their own pace.

"For several years now, we have been asked by folks across the country about the possibility of our course becoming accessible online, and today it is a reality," said WSBDF Director Richard Cates.

The WSBDF, which is going into its 22nd year, is a cooperative effort of the Center for Integrated Agricultural Systems and Farm and Industry Short Course at the UW-Madison College of Agricultural and Life Sciences.

Cates says participants have access to live recordings of WSBDF lectures addressing a wide range of topics including business planning, farm selection and setup, parlor design, livestock health, organic production and principles, marketing, soil nutrient management, and much more.
