ABOUT THIS ISSUE

It’s no secret that we’re in the midst of one of the most challenging droughts that our state has ever experienced. The goal of this special edition newsletter is to provide information you can use now to mitigate a plethora of challenges that dairy producers face related to reduced water availability. On the pages that follow, you will find research-based information from UC academics to inform management practices and decisions.

More information is available on numerous websites and in additional resources cited throughout. UC scientists have compiled drought resources that are available at http://ciwr.ucanr.edu/California_Drought_Expertise/. Additional resources for managing drought for dairies can be found on the new CA Dairy Quality Assurance website: https://cdqap.org/ruminations/dairies-and-drought/.
