WESTMORELAND, N.H. — Last summer we held a series of farm meeting with Larry Tranel from Iowa in place of the traditional Dairy Conferences usually held in March across New England. This was in response to COVID. The meetings went very well, and we had over 80 people in attendance at the three locations. We are going to continue with this format again this summer.
The topic will be “Calf Management” and the speaker will be Dr. Pete Erickson, Extension Dairy Specialist from UNH.
