Master Dairy Producer Program


****************During COVID-19 we will offer several webinars to view live and view recordings of for Master Dairy Certification. The online offerings are listed below with links to recordings of previous meetings and an evaluation sheet to fill out for Master Dairy Credits. 3 webinar recordings (3 hours total) will be equal to an in-person meeting (3 hours total). 6 hours of continuing education is needed for Master Dairy certification in 2020.***********************

The Tennessee Master Dairy Program is an educational program to provide a variety of information on animal housing, management, nutrition, reproduction, milk quality, health, handling, welfare, and other topics. Modules are continuously created to provide dairy producers and other interested parties with the most up-to-date information on the topic of interest.

Three modules are provided each year in 6 locations across the state to provide dairy producers with easy access to continuing education.  The primary goal of the TMDP is education.  Producers interested in becoming a certified "Master Dairy Producer" will need to attend 2 of the programs offered during each year the program is offered.  We anticipate this certification will satisfy the educational component for those intending to apply for the 50% cost-share through the Tennessee Agriculture Enhancement Program. Visit Tennessee Department of Agriculture to view the current items available for cost-share.  Select "Application A" for most dairy-related items.

"Master Dairy Producer" certification must be renewed yearly, so stay tuned for future programs!
