Experienced dairy graziers and farmers certified as master graziers in Dairy Grazing Apprenticeship are invited to take part in this roundtable discussion facilitated by Altfrid Krussenbaum, a retired Wisconsin dairy farmer, grazing consultant, and national education coordinator for the Dairy Grazing Apprenticeship. Conversation will include different strategies dairy farmers and graziers in Pennsylvania and Wisconsin are using to survive and compete in a challenging economic climate, as well as the role of the experienced farmer as mentor for a new generation of dairy graziers.

Interested graziers with less experience are encouraged to contact PASA event coordinator Aaron de Long regarding participation in this event at firstname.lastname@example.org or (814) 349-9856 x709.
Lunch is included with registration.
