Dairy Care Academy

Dairy Care Academy events postponed

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, MMPA has postponed the Carson City (March 18), Cass City (April 2), Falmouth (April 15) and Whittemore (April 30) Dairy Care Academy events. We will continue to monitor the situation and keep you informed about the rescheduled events as the COVID-19 outbreak continues to evolve.

Dairy Care Academy is a free MMPA program designed to help farms meet training requirements for the Farmers Assuring Responsible Management (FARM) Program. The interactive, day-long training opportunity includes three sessions covering proper milking practices, stockmanship and calf care. Each session reinforces best practices, provides a live forum for interaction and improves employee performance on the farm. Classroom-style or on-farm training is available to members upon request.

For all trainings, doors open at 9:30 a.m., programming begins promptly at 10 a.m. and training ends at 3 p.m. Lunch is provided for all attendees. Registration is limited to the first 30 attendees at each location.
