Ride to Farm is a fundraiser for the Wisconsin School for Beginning Dairy and Livestock Farmers. For 22 years, the school has helped new farmers get the information and experience they need to succeed. The program provides classroom instruction, on-farm internships, mentoring and business plan development. About 475 students have attended the school and more than 75% of its graduates are farming.
The program emphasizes low-capital, grass-based dairy farming. Using managed grazing, grass-based dairy farms can be environmentally sound while providing a good life for farm families. The School is sponsored by the Center for Integrated Agricultural Systems and the Farm and Industry Short Course, both within the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences at UW-Madison.
Gifts received will be used in a variety of ways, including:
