Dairy workshop set for next week in Lovelock

University of Nevada Cooperative Extension has partnered with the United States Department of Agriculture’s Risk Management Agency to offer an Impact of Future Growth in Nevada Dairies Workshop.

The half-day workshop will be held in Lovelock on Tuesday from 8 a.m.-noon.

The registration fee is $20 per farm, and one or two individuals from each farm may attend. To register and for information, contact Jennifer Kintz at kintzj@unce.unr.edu.

The program, funded by the USDA’s Risk Management Agency, focuses on helping producers manage their business risks through effective, market-based risk-management solutions. The workshop will give attendees an overall view of what the dairy industry will look like and how it will impact the region, according to Jennifer Kintz, registration coordinator for the class with Cooperative Extension. It will also discuss dairy and alfalfa hay prices in Nevada and opportunities available for new dairy operations.

With a new dairy expected to be in operation in the area this year, the workshop will provide valuable information for agricultural producers and how the new dairy will help the agricultural area of Nevada as a whole, Kintz said.

The growth in Nevada dairies is expected to have an effect on Nevada.
