NOFA-NY’s Organic Dairy Grazing Project will work directly with dairy farmers who are interested in the environmental and financial opportunities associated with better grazing practices. Farmers who need guidance in evaluating their farm’s potential forage production, technical assistance in grazing practices to optimize that production, and would like to work within a peer group of fellow organic dairy farmers are encouraged to apply. Farmers who participate will have a working knowledge of the organic industry, know how to manage their dairy cattle on forage to optimize production and lower feed costs to help their bottom line.

Application for 2018 Dairy Grazing Project avilable here. Questions may be directed to Morgan Hartman, (585) 271-1979 ext. 505 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
