(WFRV) – In this segment of Life on the Farm we tag along for a tour as part of FVTC’s “Cow College”.
The featured farm is overhauling its ration, to include more alternative forages.
We hear from a dairy consultant who says they are easier to grow, more digestible, and lead to a boost in milk production.
(WFRV) – Since 1991, AgrAbility of Wisconsin has been promoting success in agriculture for farmers with disabilities and their families.
Over 4,000 injuries occur on Wisconsin farms each year, many resulting in permanent disabilities. In the entire United States, agricultural production is one of the most hazardous occupations with the highest disabling injury rate of any industry.
AgrAbility services are available to those individuals and their families who are engaged in farming or farm-related occupations and are coping with the effects of a disability. Services provided at the home or farm are confidential.
Life on the Farm is a partnership with Fox Valley Technical College. FVTC offers 14 Agriculture programs of study, including Associate Degree programs in Agribusiness Science & Technology – Animal Science and Agriculture Power Equipment. Classes are offered online and in-person to accommodate busy schedules. Learn more about an education in Agriculture, Horticulture & Natural Resources at FVTC.
