The purpose of the Dairy Farm Manager Academy is to provide training for dairy farm managers to increase their skills for managing dairy cattle, personnel, and the aspects affecting the financial success of the operation. Using science-based practices, the goal is to train dairy farm managers to meet the current demands for the dairy industry and successfully manage modern dairy operations.

There will be 4 modules with 2 days each (Friday and Saturday), one offered every other month. Two of the modules will be taught in Wooster (Shisler Center with housing in Hilton Garden Inn) and two taught in Columbus near the campus of The Ohio State University (e.g., Hilton Garden Inn, Olentangy River Road). During the month between modules, a webinar with participants will be held to reinforce the content in the previous module and encourage completion of the homework. Participants will receive a certificate of completion at the end of the program. Program will be held for the first time February – August, 2018.
