Dairy & Livestock

Animal agriculture is an important economic force in Rock County. It includes hundreds of family-owned farms, related businesses and industries that provide equipment, services and additional products farmers need to process, market and deliver food and fiber to consumers. The Rock County Dairy and Livestock program provides education and assistance to keep this important industry viable. It also works with local governments on land-use issues to protect our agricultural land base, one of the counties greatest natural resources. Major programs include:

  • Dairy and Livestock Production and Management
  • Farm Financial Management
  • Direct Market – Alternative Ag Enterprises
  • Land Use Education
  • Dairy and Livestock Facility Modernization
  • Dairy and Livestock Youth Educational Programs
