Dairy Worker Training Modules
Many dairy farms hire employees to care for their animals and to manage farm operations. These employees must possess the expertise required to proficiently handle the diverse tasks inherent in dairy operations. However, a significant number of these workers lack adequate training or experience in this domain.
Addressing this crucial need, the UW-Madison Division of Extension Dairy Program built the “Dairy Workers Training Modules.” These modules were specifically tailored to equip dairy workers with the essential skills for optimizing their performance on the farm. Presently, two modules have been successfully developed: “Milking Skills” and “Reproductive Skills,” both of which aim to enhance and refine the capabilities of dairy workers.
