Southwest Wisconsin: Apply to be a mentor or seek a mentor through
Southwest Badegr's Mentorship Program for Future Livestock Farmers.
The program builds on existing mentorship programs in the region by training mentors, paying mentors, and connecting participants with grassland acres to rent for well-managed grazing through the Grazing Broker. We will help mentors and beginners to assess what they can offer and what they hope to learn from a mentorship. We also encourage experienced farmers to apply as beginners to access support and learn new skills such as grass-finishing, grass-dairying, or organic livestock production. Call 608-732-1202 for more information.
