Farmers encouraged to take part in free regenerative dairy training course 

The Regen Dairy Project has just announced the launch of a free online training course for farmers wanting to start a regenerative dairy journey.

The Regen Dairy Project announced the launch of a free online training course for farmers wanting to start a regenerative dairy journey.

The project is a collaboration led by FAI Farms and Farmwel and supported by several global food companies. 

Its organisers said that the course will be focused around a practical vision for a productive and profitable global dairy sector that also restores its relationship with nature, actively working to reverse global warming and biodiversity degradation. 

Uniquely, the development of this new course has been farmer-led, which is a result of working with regenerative dairy farmers around the world to provide practical training that can easily be implemented on farm.  

It is designed for farmers who are curious about what regenerative agriculture means in the context of dairy farming.  

The course utilises the personal experiences of many farmers to explain the basic principles of regenerative dairy farming with real-life examples of how to observe and measure change.

Introduction to regenerative dairy 

Øistein Thorsen, CEO of FAI Farms

Commenting on the launch, Øistein Thorsen, CEO of FAI Farms, said: “We face two great crises in nature: global warming and biodiversity loss. We must urgently address agriculture’s impact, but we also have to produce diverse and nutritious food to nourish a growing global population.  

“Regenerative agriculture can help restore the balance with nature and the Regen Dairy Project is working to clearly identify what successful regenerative dairy looks like from a farmers’ perspective.  

“This project has enabled us to work closely with farmers around the world, understanding their journeys towards regenerative dairy.   

“We thank all the farmers we have spoken to throughout this project who have shared their highs, lows, and importantly, practical advice for adopting regenerative principles on farm. 

“These learnings have been critical in helping us design the farmer-led ‘introduction to regenerative dairy’ course, enabling farmers to be in the driving seat for the successful adoption of regenerative farming at scale.”
