Ride to Farm is a bicycle ride to raise awareness and funds for the Wisconsin School for Beginning Dairy and Livestock Farmers (WSBDF) at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Donations can be made to individual riders and teams, or you can make a general donation. Riders must raise a minimum of $75 to participate in Ride to Farm. Donations will go to the University of Wisconsin Foundation and are tax deductible.
The Wisconsin School for Beginning Dairy and Livestock Farmers is sponsored by the Center for Integrated Agricultural Systems and the Farm and Industry Short Course, both within the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences, UW-Madison.
