Wisconsin School for Beginning Dairy and Livestock Farmers hopes to offer its distance education program at 15 sites around the state this year, pending adequate enrollment. Each classroom will have video and audio links to the school's weekly seminar in Madison, but will also have an on-site instructor and feature guest lectures by local grazing specialists, farm lenders and experienced farmers. Students will also tour local farms and have opportunities to participate in internships and industry conferences. The school is offered through the UW-Madison Farm and Industry Short Course. The 15-week course begins November 8 and meets every Thursday. The deadline for enrollment applications for the distance sites is November 1. Some scholarships are available.
