UVM Extension seeks dairy farm nominations
BURLINGTON — University of Vermont Extension and the Vermont Dairy Industry Association are seeking nominations for the 2018 Vermont Dairy Farm of the Year. The deadline to submit is April 27.
The award, which has been presented annually since 1961, honors one outstanding dairy farm each year for overall excellence in dairying. Nominees are evaluated by a judging committee comprised of past winners on their overall farm management, innovative practices, milk quality, crops, pasture quality, conservation practices and promotion of the dairy industry.
Anyone may nominate a farm. Previous nominees that did not win may be nominated again. The winner will be announced this summer.
For details about the award, the 2017 winner — Fairmont Farm of East Montpelier and Craftsbury — and a link to the nomination form go to go.uvm.edu/vdfya. For more info or to request a copy of the form, contact Peggy Manahan at 800-639-2130 or [email protected].
