The Professional Dairy Producers of Wisconsin is offering a round-trip bus tour of three dairy operations in central Wisconsin next month that have transition cow facilities. Organizers say the tours include lunch, refreshments and information that you can't gather anywhere other than on real dairy farms. The event is scheduled for Nov. 1.
Participating farms include Loucks Dairy Farm in Abbotsford, Kingdom Haven Farms, Inc. near Edgar, and Maple Ridge Dairy in Stratford.
The bus boards at 8:45 a.m. at the Cedar Creek Mall in Wausau. The trip costs $25 for PDPW members and $50 for non-members. Participation is limited to the first 100 people who register.
