With the current volatile dairy market, rising input costs, and continued challenges in commercial dairy production, farm owners are looking for new ways to improve their profitability. For farms interested in diversifying or vertically integrating their business, one option could be on-farm processing of raw milk into value-added goods and bottled fluid milk for sale. Cornell Cooperative Extension and Cornell University experts are coming together to present a series of webinars to discuss the business considerations and regulatory requirements of on-farm dairy processing.
