Milking Forages for All They're Worth
Includes lunch and trade show!
Our speakers, Rick Grant & Ev Thomas, will have sort of a Miner Institute reunion. Rick has just retired as President of Miner Institute. Ev retired from Miner several years ago, but now operates Oak Point Agronomics, a crop consulting business. You have most likely read articles they have written in Hoard's Dairyman and Progressive Dairy. They often answer questions in Hoard's "Questions from our Readers" section on dairy and crop production. Both of them bring a lifetime of experience in research and the practical application of making management decisions at Miner Institute. Located in Chazy NY, The William H. Miner Agricultural Research Institute's principal function is the economic improvement of agricultural operations through research, education, and demonstration. Miner Institute conducts research programs that apply basic science to contemporary problems confronting the dairy industry. The areas of focus include the crop-animal-environment interface, milk analysis as a herd management tool, cow comfort and behavior. While conducting research, the 625 cow herd boasts a nearly 32,000 lb. herd average with 4.2% butterfat and 3.1% protein!
