Welcome to the University of Maryland's Dairy Extension Program! 

Maryland is home to over 300 dairy farms and 42,000 cows.  Our goal is to provide dairy producers with resources to help them enhance the success and profitability of their operations.  Programming efforts focus on animal care and management, nutrition, forage production, and agribusiness management.
