HARRISBURG, Pa.– Dairy farm families interested in improving herd health and cow care can apply to participate in the Center for Dairy Excellence pilot, “Herd Health and Cow Care Improvement Project.”
The project is supported by a grant from the Pennsylvania Soybean Board.
Each participating farm will have up to $1,000 in financial support to work with the herd’s veterinarian and a Penn State veterinarian to aid in improving a component of the dairy, ultimately enhancing overall herd health and animal care on the farm.
Participating farms will provide details of their work in improving their specific herd health and animal care focus to the center. This information will be shared with the dairy industry to help other dairies looking to resolve similar issues.
Applications for the pilot project must be submitted by Nov. 15 and are available from the center by calling 717-346-0849 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Farms will be selected for the project on a first-come, first-served basis with considerations given to the herd management support area and regional location.
