UMaine joins study on pastures in Northeast

The Multistate Research Fund Impacts Program reported that the University of Maine’s School of Food and Agriculture is participating in a study on pastures in the Northeastern U.S. Scientists have made discoveries about the health benefits of pasture-produced milk, which could increase demand and prices and help dairies stay in business. The project includes Cornell University, University of New Hampshire and the University of Vermont, and is being supported by the USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture.
