Transitioning to Organic Dairy Production? A workshop at the VT Winter Grazing Conference Jan 15 & 16

Is a Dropping Milk Price Making You Think About Organic Transition?

Is organic dairy production something you have considered, or are curious about?  Are you confused about the pasture requirements, what products are allowable, how certification works, or simply how to get started?  This informal and friendly session with organic dairy consultant Sarah Flack and Ashley Green of Vermont Organic Farmers will give you an overview and tailor their presentation around getting your questions answered.  Representatives from several dairy companies will also be on hand to describe their organic programs, including pay price and bonus structures.  Even if you don’t start a transition tomorrow, this session can help you lay the groundwork to keep your future options open.
