UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Decision making related to farm succession and expansion will be the topic of the next Penn State Dairy Alliance’s Lunchtime Series for New and Beginning Dairy Producers session offered via the web from noon to 1 p.m. Nov. 26.
Guest presenter is Lisa Holden, associate professor of Dairy and Animal Science at Penn State.
The case study is a multi-generational dairy faced with making difficult decisions related to farm succession and potential expansion while addressing key nutrient management issues.
Holden will present short segments of information about the case and then allow for discussion of issues across the participants.
The new web-based training program saves dairy owners and managers time and money by offering online training at no charge.
The series is designed for the dairy producer who is new to the industry, has recently completed a management transition and is a new owner or is simply less experienced.
The training is offered in real-time, via the Internet. Participants need a phone and a computer with high-speed Internet connection to access the Web site that will be used for the training.
Pre-registration is required for each session by calling the Dairy Alliance office at 888-373-7232 by noon on the Monday prior to the session.
The final session will be Dec. 17.
