The Pennsylvania Center for Dairy Excellence and Center for Beef Excellence announced a joint initiative to provide support and resources to both dairy and beef farms in meeting baseline agricultural compliance. The Centers worked in partnership with local conservation districts to support and conduct workshops helping dairy and beef farmers write Agriculture Erosion & Sediment Control Plans.
The Centers are also offering financial assistance to dairy or beef farms that need professional assistance in developing plans and meeting baseline compliance. Grants are available to beef and dairy farmers to provide assistance needed beyond these workshops. Click here.
