Young and beginning dairy farmers need to build equity and experience. Older and more experienced dairy farmers need to ease their own workload, find a committed labor pool, and consider ways to pass their knowledge and possibly the farm to a new generation. Two fresh strategies may offer options for grazing dairies at both ends of the relationship. Rick Kersbergen of the University of Maine Cooperative Extension is the New England Educational Coordinator for the Dairy Grazing Apprenticeship Program www.dga-national.org/, which matches Master Grazers with Apprentices for a minimum time commitment of two years. Jenn Colby of UVM Extension is leading a SARE Partnership grant to learn more about the experience (and recommendations) of custom graziers and organic dairy producers working together to manage dry stock away from grazing land prioritized for milk-producing animals.
