MONROE - The Green County Milk Quality Council, in cooperation with UW-Extension, will sponsor the 21st Green County Dairy Management Seminar from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Thursday January 8, in the auditorium of Government Services Building, Monroe.

The featured speakers this year will include Dr. Randy Shaver, UW Dairy Nutritionist. Dr. Shaver will be giving presentations on "Using By-Product Feeds to Reduce Feed Costs for Milk Cows," "Dry Cow Nutrition" and "Coping with Higher Grain Costs." Dr Bruce Jones, UW-Extension Farm Management Specialist, will also be on the program and will address the topic of "Managing Your Farm in Response to Changing Prices and Costs in Agriculture." Dr. Jones will discuss how these changing prices impact the economic decisions on dairy farms.

Due to sponsorships by many local businesses the advance registration fee is $5 and includes lunch. Registrations are due to the Green County UW-Extension Office by Jan. 2. An additional $2 late fee will be charged for registrations received after this date. Enrollment is limited to the first 60 participants who register.

Registration brochures are available at most Green County area dairy supply and service businesses, or can be obtained via the Internet at or by contacting Mark Mayer, UW-Extension Agriculture Agent for Green County at 328-9440.
