Understanding the Impacts of the COVID-19 Pandemic on Connecticut Dairy Farms
Sara Pantel
The purpose of this study is to understand the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on a small segment of the dairy industry: medium-to-large dairies in Connecticut. Through in-depth and structured interviews with farmers and their staff, the project will delve into the economic effects, the experience of farm staff, and potential impacts on the cows. In doing so, it aims to shed light on previously unacknowledged ways in which the pandemic affected individual dairy farms.
