Just Published: Mentor-Intern Handbook for Dairy and Livestock Farmers

Livestock farmer or not, any farmer who takes on interns should have a look at this new resource!

On-farm mentors are individuals who have struggled—but survived—in their endeavors as farmers and want to help teach an upcoming generation about making a living off of the land while maintaining its integrity. An on-farm mentor should not only be a good farmer but also a good teacher, one who is willing to take the time to explain how and why he or she does certain things. This handbook will help mentors develop their teaching skills as they progress through their first—or perhaps fortieth—internship.

Check out the Mentor-Intern Handbook for Dairy and Livestock Farmers here!

The handbook was created by the Center for Integrated Agricultural Systems of the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
