Women in Dairy to Learn Tips for Balancing Chores and Children Returning to School
at Aug. 9 Program in Springfield


CASSVILLE, Mo. - It is well known that dairy farmers work 24/7/365 days a year. Achieving work life balance can be especially difficult for those with young children during the school year.

During the fall, the competition between milking and crop harvest with ball games and schoolwork leaves many dairy farmers spread thin.

University of Missouri Extension's Women in Dairy program invites ladies from all generations to an informal meeting and lunch from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Aug. 9 at the Greene County Extension office, 2400 S. Scenic Ave., Springfield to discuss time-saving techniques to "get 'em on the bus."

Every dairy family is uniquely different. Some participate in public school, while others prefer home school. Attendees are asked to bring all ideas that work well for their family to this meeting.

"Farm organization ideas, herd tricks, crockpot recipes, laundry ideas, school curriculum, the ideas and the options are limitless. Everyone has at least one idea to contribute," said Reagan Bluel, MU Extension dairy specialist.

In addition to the time management program, the 2018 schedule for the University of Missouri Women in Dairy program will be determined at this meeting.

"To ensure the topics you are interested in learning about are covered, please attend to contribute to the 2018 programming calendar," said Bluel.

Do not want to miss this free two-part meeting. Pre-registration is needed by contacting Bluel by telephone at 417-847-3161 or email BluelRJ@missouri.edu by Aug. 7.
