Processor Grants Available for Dairy Farmers

Wisconsin dairy processors are invited to apply for the Grow Wisconsin Dairy 30×20 Processor Grants. The grants are intended to foster innovation, improve profitability and sustain the long-term viability of Wisconsin’s dairy processing facilities. Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP) is accepting requests for proposal through June 1.

“The demand for quality Wisconsin dairy products continues to grow around the world,” said Dan Smith, division administrator for DATCP’s division of agricultural development. “To meet the demand, dairy processors need to be innovative, efficient and adaptable. They need to be able to meet a number of regulatory requirements. These grants are designed to help them do so.”

Recipients will be chosen through a competitive selection process. Successful applicants will be notified by Aug. 1. Find application materials at datcp.wi.gov/Farms/Dairy_Farming/Processor_Grant. If you have questions, contact Stacie Ashby at 608.224.5116 or [email protected].
