At Miner Institute, we feel that we must engage the farm and non-farm community alike on issues that cross-cut agriculture and society: food safety and security, environmental impacts of farming, animal well-being, and sustainability of our food production systems — regionally and globally.
The Agriculture in Society Speaker Series will be one of our major efforts to bring science-based information to the community.
Dr. John Bramley was born and educated in the United Kingdom. His research has focused on bovine mastitis and he led a team of researchers in cloning a gene that led to the world’s fi rst mastitisresistant animals. He became chair of the Department of Animal Sciences at the University of Vermont in 1990 and was appointed Dean of the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences and Director of the Vermont Agricultural Experiment Station in 1999. From 2007 to 2011 he was the President and CEO of the Windham Foundation, the largest private foundation in Vermont which owns and operates the Old Tavern at Grafton and the Grafton Village Cheese Company. He served as President of the University of Vermont in 2011-2012.
The event will be held at the Joseph C. Burke Education and Research Center at Miner Institute, 586 Ridge Rd., Chazy.
