Horner Moves to DFA's Dairy Grazing Services

Joe Horner, MU Extension Dairy Economist, will be joing the Dairy Grazing Services unit of Dairy Farmers of America (DFA), beginning May 1, 2010, taking a one-year, eighty percent leave of absence from MU's Commercial Ag Extension Program.

DFA's Dairy Grazing Services (DGS) unit was started in 2009. The mission of DGS is to help grazing dairy producers improve their profitability. DGS offers products tailored for grazing as well as consulting services. In addition the unit supports and facilitates grazing conferences, workshops and local grazing events. The goal of DFA’s DGS unit is to provide the resources producers need when looking to incorporate grass-based dairying into their operations. 

During Horner's absence for the next year, the rest of the Commercial Agriculture Dairy Focus Team will be filling in as needed. A complete list of the other members of the Commerical Ag Dairy Focus Team is available at: http://agebb.missouri.edu/commag/dairy/members.htm
