About the Workshop
Learn from nationally known entomologists who will share their research and experience on fly control management strategies for your organic dairy farm. A panel discussion will follow the speakers’ presentations. The workshop is hosted by the University of New Hampshire, with help from University of Vermont Extension and eOrganic. It is being funded by the USDA NIFA Organic Research and Extension Initiative (OREI) planning grant #2010-01932.
