Mike Cannell Beginning Dairy & Livestock Farmer Memorial Scholarship
This scholarship was established in honor of Mike Cannell, a Richland County dairy farmer who was an early champion of grass-based dairy farming and a leader in establishing programs and policies to support family farming, rural community revitalization, social justice and sustainable agriculture. Cannell died in 1996 in a machinery accident while helping a neighbor. The scholarship helps support partial tuition costs to attend the FISC/WSBDF classroom program, or internships on grass-based dairy farms.
Recipients will be selected for this award by the Director of the Center for Integrated Agricultural Systems Wisconsin School for Beginning Dairy and Livestock Farmers.
