Transition Cow Facility Planning & Remodeling Dairy Barns -
How do you ask your lender for money to build or remodel a barn and not add any additional milking cows? If you've struggled with this question, this workshop is for you! Using the new Dairyland Initiative program, which stores in one easy to access location all the information you need to build or remodel a dairy barn, Drs. Nigel Cook and Ken Nordlund will walk you through the steps you need to take to create facilities that make your cows happy, healthy and productive. You'll learn how to use the Transition Cow Index and other partial budgeting tools to show that the decision makes economic sense, we'll use Virtual Tours of facilities to share ideas and the Wisconsin Blueprint to layout the floor plan of the new facility.
