Held on dairy farms throughout southern Wisconsin, our farmers open their barn doors to allow you a safe experience to explore their animal care practices, environmental stewardship techniques, employee management, and the economics of production agriculture.

Attendees will leave the training with:

  • 20+ hours of hands-on, on-farm experience
  • Enhanced knowledge of modern agriculture
