Meetings and Trainings

We have information on many agriculture workshops that are being offered by the University of Wisconsin-Madison Department of Extension.

  • Heart of the Farm-Women in Agriculture – The Heart of the Farm-Women in Agriculture program offers one day conferences, training programs, networking, hands-on workshops, programming on business planning, farm management, human resources and more. Watch here and their website, Heart of the Farm for upcoming seminars.
  • Beef Quality Assurance Certification Meeting – The UW-Madison’s Division of Extension and the Wisconsin Beef Council will be hosting a set schedule of in-person Beef Quality Assurance (BQA) certification meetings over the coming months.  In-person sessions are intended for those who cannot complete the online certification available by going to https://www.bqa.org/ and clicking on ‘Certification’. To attend the in-person meetings, farmers must register 7 days before the meeting date as attendance is limited based on location capacity and to follow any COVID guidelines in place at that time.  NO walk-ins will be allowed.   Due to limited capacity, it is encouraged that one individual per farm attend the in-person meetings.  The individual attending the meeting will hold the BQA certification; family members and employees are covered by that certification when it is filed with the market(s). It is each individuals’ responsibility to share certification details with markets.

    To register for an in-person session, go to https://tinyurl.com/2hr5karf or call the Eau Claire County Extension office at 715-839-4712 for the location you wish to attend.

    *Note that for all Extension meetings, masks and social distancing may be required.  Individuals not willing to comply will be asked to leave.
