Dairy Care Academy
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.
Six trainings are scheduled throughout the region in 2020. 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.
