Seeking Dairy Farms to Join Dairy Grazing Cohort

Cornell Cooperative Extension's Fay Benson is seeking dairy farmers who are interested in transitioning to grazing for their milk cows or heifers. 

Training and Funding to Grow Dairy Grazing Operations in New York

Limited Time to Apply to Join Dairy Grazing Cohort

The Northeast Dairy Business Innovation Center has introduced a new initiative to support new or existing dairy farms that would like to increase grazing practices within their operation. As part of this initiative, Fay Benson with Cornell Cooperative Extension is partnering with Pennsylvania Association of Sustainable Agriculture (PASA) to expand well-managed grazing lands in New York and Pennsylvania and support regional farmers in their grazing transition. To learn more about the project and to apply to be a participant go to: https://pasafarming.org/soil-institute/farmer-training-development/transition-to-grazing-cohorts/

Farmers that are selected to join one of the two cohorts, will be eligible to receive one on one technical support as well as apply for a $5,000 grant at the end of the two-year commitment. Signups will be accepted through July 1st and the New York Cohort will be capped at 10 farms. Applicants must apply online.
