The National Farmers Assuring Responsible Management (FARM) Program will host a series of online informational sessions beginning Nov. 4. The “Quick Convos” will feature FARM staff and industry stakeholders discussing program components, expectations, and available resources.
“These conversations will be an opportunity for farmers to really engage,” said Emily Yeiser Stepp, vice president for the FARM Program at the National Milk Producers Federation, which administers FARM. “Our staff can answer whatever questions the participants might have about program standards and expectations.”
Each 30-minute, live-streamed segment will be hosted on Zoom and streamed via Facebook. Recordings of the conversations and supplementary material will be available on the FARM Quick Convos webpage after each session.
The initial sessions, which will cover FARM Program pillars and basics, will follow the schedule below:
