INDIANA, Pa. — Penn State Extension educators will offer a series of workshops in western Pennsylvania for dairy producers on stretching their dairy dollar.
When milk prices are low, even the smallest details have significant impact on farm profitability.
Workshops will focus on key areas where producers can cut input costs and improve production efficiencies and dairy income.
John Tyson, a veteran agricultural engineer, will highlight facility management and cow comfort issues and other educators will lead discussion on management of milk quality and reproduction.
Workshops will begin at 10 a.m. at the following locations.
Nov. 17 at Hoss’s Restaurant in Somerset (Somerset County).
Dec. 6 at Hoss’s Restaurant in Grove City (Mercer County).
Dec. 8 at The Home Made Restaurant in Home (Indiana County).
