The Wisconsin Ayrshire Breeders’ Association is proud to offer its Beginning in Ayrshires Grant for its fourth year. This grant annually chooses a farmer to receive $1,000 towards the purchase of a registered Ayrshire cow.Ayrshire cattle have many positive attributes in production and reproduction, and fit well into all types of dairy farms. Many farmers enjoy their low somatic cell count, reliable production, and competitiveness in the show ring.
The Beginning in Ayrshires Grant is awarded to a Wisconsin resident actively engaged in dairy farming, who has a strong interest in the breed and plans for their future in farming. The grant is awarded at the annual meeting, this year to be held in Tomah at the Cranberry Lodge on March 6th, 2021.
The $1,000 will be given as a voucher, redeemable at the annual Wisconsin Ayrshire Spring Sale, which will be held on April 17, 2021 in Thorp.
Applications can be obtained by visiting the Wisconsin Ayrshire Breeders’ Association Facebook page, or by contacting Monica Schwittay, at 920-980-5722 or by email [email protected]. Applications are due January 20th, 2021.
