The answer to helping dairy farmers supplement their income could be in their breeding practices. The Kewaunee County UW-Extension will host a workshop April 17th in Slovan on how breeding beef sires with dairy cows could be beneficial to their herd. According to the UW-Extension, commodity prices have led dairy farmers to cross breed beef with their dairy cattle in order to increase the marketability of the animals they may sell down the road. Kewaunee County UW-Extension Agriculture Educator Aerica Bjurstrom explains what people can expect from the session.
