Orange City, Iowa – A collaboration of land-grant university extension specialists from Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, and South Dakota and representatives from the dairy industry with complementary expertise and knowledge of dairy production and management in the region are inviting dairy producers to a dairy workshop.

The collaboration is known as “I-29 Moo University.” They are encouraging dairy producers to register for this week’s I-29 Moo University Winter Workshop. This year’s theme is “Milking the Carbon Cow.” The workshops will take place at Wilbert Square Event Center in Brookings, SD.

Fred Hall, who is a dairy field specialist with ISU Extension and Outreach, based in Orange City, says that the workshop will highlight a number of experts who will focus on topics that will help dairy producers understand carbon credits and market access.

The workshop begins at 10 a.m., with registration and refreshments, and will conclude at 3 pm.

Registration fees are $10 per person. Click here to register.

Hall tells us workshop topics include Measuring, Managing, and Modeling for the future with Dr. Kaitlyn Briggs, who is the Director of Environmental Research for Dairy Management Inc.; What’s all the Fuss about Carbon: A Soil Perspective, by Anthony Bly, who is an SDSU Extension Soils Field Specialist; and Opportunities and considerations in carbon markets by Leif Fixen, an Agriculture Strategy manager, for The Nature Conservancy.

There will also be a panel discussion.
