Recently Published Paper on Climate Change and Dairy Farmers in New York and Wisconsin

CICSS Director Allison Chatrchyan co-authored a recently published paper titled “Climate Change and Dairy in New York and Wisconsin: Risk Perceptions, Vulnerability, and Adaptation among Farmers and Advisors.” The research presented explores how dairy farmers and their advisors are interpreting and responding to climate impacts, risks, and opportunities. It was found that dairy farmers articulated climate impact concerns, but business pressures were often the more critical issues that affected their decision making. Personal experiences with extreme weather and seasonal changes also had an impact on their choices.
