Dairy Impact August 2022

  • A carcass show for livestock and dairy youth, where they learned about meat quality assurance and meat production. This effort is designed to teach youth how their dairy-beef, beef, and/or swine project fits into real-world agriculture, improving farm business viability while protecting food safety.
  • Planning and development of a series of short videos for dairy farmers, managers, herdsperson, and employees in collaboration with Soaring Eagle Dairy. The goal of this effort is to provide short training video clips to teach individuals research-based industry practices, improve fresh cow wellbeing, and welfare to increase farm business viability while protecting food safety.
  • Planning for a bilingual dairy workers newsletter for on-farm dairy employees in collaboration with Language Access and Office of Access, Inclusion, and Compliance. The goal of this effort is to provide a dairy resource to an underserved audience in order for them to gain new knowledge and best management practices to incorporate on the farm to help maintain and grow economic viability.
