A number of resources are available online with the purpose of transferring research knowledge to farmers in practical terms and in a way that is easily accessible from a desktop or mobile phone.
Knowledge transfer activities are being developed nationally and provincially through DFC and its member organizations. In an effort to share resources and information, the Canadian Dairy Research Portal at www.dairyresearch.ca has a Producer Resources section that is being populated with information from dairy farm organizations, including provincial initiatives that could serve to help farmers from coast to coast.
Provincial Research Transfer Tools: DFC provincial member organizations can submit or post their research transfer tools to share with other farmers. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with your information.
Environment: The new DairyFarmsPlus.ca dairy farm production sustainability assessment tool is open to all dairy farmers now. Give it a try and see how your farm compares to the provincial or national benchmarks for dairy sustainability.
