The Dairy Edge program is targeted at producers age 19-30 and focuses on management practices. Participants utilize all tools available to a dairy operation while learning assessment techniques and troubleshooting tips to prepare for the competition. Part of this event takes place on-farm where participants assess management practices in-depth.
"Dairy Edge has been highly successful over the three years and we look forward to expanding the program in the years to come," says Mark Carson, EastGen Reproductive Solutions Manager, who created and developed the program for management-minded youth with a thirst for more knowledge. Dairy Edge appeals to a group of rural youth, who are herd management-focused, allowing them to benefit from EastGen's educational program."
