We ask all of our participants to raise pledges that will support the Wisconsin School for Beginning Dairy and Livestock Farmers in a variety of ways:

  • Tuition scholarships and internship expenses
  • Scholarships for student travel to conferences
  • Honoraria for farmers who help teach this course
  • Short-term and long-term support for the school through staff salary and its endowment at the UW-Madison

We have fabulous prizes for our top individual fundraisers, including:

  • TREK Road Bike! Depending on how much you raise, you could get a bike worth between $800 and $1200! 
  • Organic Valley "Milk for a Year" - 52 coupons each worth $10
  • Two tickets to any show at American Players Theater
  • Sitka Salmon gift certificate
  • "Ride to Farm" cyclist jerseys .. and more!

There will be teams of cyclists riding in 2021, however, contributions made directly to teams will not count toward these prizes for individual fundraisers. Individual team members, however, are eligible for these incentives, as all contributions made in their names will count.

We will award trophies in 2021 to the business-sponsored team and team of family/friends that raise the most money for the Wisconsin School for Beginning Dairy and Livestock Farmers.

Pledges received by June 2nd will count toward these prizes!
