UNH Scientists Receive $2M Grant to Support Organic Dairy Industry
“Organic dairy is undergoing a transition. After a decade-long 'boom' cycle, where demand outpaced production, diminished demand for fluid milk and lower pay prices are acute threats to the sustainability of the organic dairy industry here in New England and elsewhere. Given this new reality, the need to enhance production efficiency, feed quality, and milk components has become even more critical to ensuring that organic dairy remains a profitable enterprise,” said
