MADISON — The Dairy Business Innovation Alliance (DBIA), a partnership between the Center for Dairy Research (CDR) and Wisconsin Cheese Makers Association (WCMA), has opened registration for the “Let’s Get Started” webinar series. These webinars are geared towards dairy farmers and processors interested in improving their business through diversification, including the development of new value-added products.
The “Let’s Get Started” webinar series will help identify local resources, expertise and technical assistance to support dairy farmers and processors who have decided to move forward on diversifying their enterprise or developing a new product.
The webinars will be a combination of general information presentations, breakout sessions and interviews with farmers and processors who will share their experiences and lessons learned. The goal of the webinar series is to connect dairy businesses to local or state-level resources that can assist with each stage of their project.
