The Michigan State University Extension Dairy Team invites dairy farmers and ag professionals to join them for virtual “coffee breaks”. These coffee breaks with the MSU Dairy Team are a new series of virtual meetings that will occur each Wednesday morning in March and April at 10:00 a.m. They are designed as conversations lasting less than a half hour, that can be listened to live, or listened to as posted recordings any time after those dates.
