Dairy farmers, value-added dairy producer-processors, and industry partners from Tennessee, North Carolina, and Kentucky are invited to attend the upcoming Wisconsin Value-Added Dairy Experiential Learning Course.

This short course will take place October 2 – 5, 2023. Course participants will meet in the Madison, WI area for four days of programming including visits to cheese processing facilities, creameries, and a visit to this year’s World Dairy Expo. 

The course itinerary includes eight stops at farms where participants will learn directly from farm owners and staff about a variety of topics such as dairy product production, on-farm marketing, product packaging, and agritourism. These sessions are intended to help value-added entrepreneurs analyze, develop, and grow their farm enterprises. While the program especially targets value-added dairy producers, interested technical assistance providers and industry partners are welcome to participate as well.

More detailed registration and travel information.

Funding for the event has been made possible, in part, by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Agricultural Marketing Service. Additional information about the Southeastern Dairy Business Innovation Initiative.

 Pre-registration is required to participate in the Wisconsin Value-Added Dairy Experiential Learning Course, and spaces are limited. The application deadline is August 31st, 2023, at 4 p.m./ET. Accepted applicants will only be financially responsible for their travel to and from Madison, Wisconsin.
