The dairy business can get messy, but dairy producers can turn poo into profit. Upcoming meetings throughout Kentucky aim to show dairy cattle managers how to do just that.

The meetings will focus on understanding Kentucky agricultural water quality plans and nutrient management plans, how to be prepared when a state inspector arrives and management practices that will increase milk quality.

The University of Kentucky College of Agriculture, Food and Environment joins the Kentucky Dairy Development Council, the Division of Compliance Assistance, Soil Conservation Districts of Kentucky and the Kentucky Farm Bureau to present the regional dairy meetings.

These meetings and the lunch provided are free to any Kentucky dairy farmer. RSVP to Meredith Scales at 859-516-1966 prior to the meeting. Contact your local Cooperative Extension office or local KDDC consultant for more information. Please arrive 15 minutes prior to the meeting to register.
