Hello! We are coming to the area the week of September 7th, 2014. There are 3 of us, all women. We are involved in Dairy Agriculture in the US, Idaho at this time. We would love to learn more about the dairy farming and cheese making in Switzerland.
Myself (Dairy sanitation/production), Friend (Animal Nutrition & Dairy owner) and my daughter (Recent High School graduate who will start University in 2015 in Agriculture and has been involved in 4-H and FFA, qualifying for Nationals in Daity Foods and Floriculture) are visiting this area of Switzerland and Zermatt after working at the FEI WEG in Caen.
We will have a vehicle and plan to budget stay. Walking will also be what we enjoy. During this time will cows be brought off of summer range, or are we early for this? We would even enjoy helping if possible, straw stays, hostels etc. are ok. Any agriculture is ok!
Thank you for your time and help!
