Dairy Care Academy
Dairy Care Academy is a free MMPA animal care training program for farm owners and employees. Designed to help farms meet Farmers Assuring Responsible Management (FARM) program training requirements, it also educates employees and improves performance. The day-long training opportunity takes place across the state and includes three sessions: proper milking practices, stockmanship and calf care.
Participants can ask questions and interact with the speakers during the training. After completion, participants in attendance will receive a certificate of completion and each member farm will receive a list of their employees who attended to meet FARM program training documentation needs.

To supplement in-person trainings, the Dairy Care Academy team launched an online, on-demand employee training resource that can be found on the producer portal. The platform includes six courses complete with videos and resources, making it easy for members and farm employees to complete the course relevant to their role on the farm. After completing the course employees can take a quiz covering what they have learned and receive a printable certificate if they score 80 percent or better on the quiz.
