CADE: Added Value Dairy Track Session 1 - Determining your Dairy Product Mix

  • CADE 5 Elm Street Oneonta, NY, 13820 United States (map)

Want to make your own added value dairy products, but do not know which ones? There are many directions to take your farm and this workshop series will help you to explore what is best for you and your family farm’s future. Utilizing Business Canvas Models and the expertise of neighboring farms that already have their own product line, we will help you test out your added value ideas. 

This is the first session in the three-part Added Value Dairy Track. We will start this session with an overview of the Business Canvas Model Tools, basic milk requirements for different dairy products, processing equipment and labor costs, and recent added value dairy market developments. Farmers are asked to bring information about their milk components and volume to the workshop and will crunch numbers to evaluate the different dairy products they are interested in making. The additional workshops in this series are: Added Value Dairy Session 2 – Marketing Options for your Dairy Product Mix and Added Value Dairy Track Session 3 – Packaging for your Dairy Product Mix.
