The Professional Dairy Producers of Wisconsin will hold a Dairy Dialogue Day Tour, a daylong chartered bus tour to visit two high-performing dairies and connect with fellow dairy owners and managers. The tour will be held Aug. 16, departing from Compeer Financial in Prairie du Sac at 9:30 a.m. and returning by 3:30 p.m.
The tour will be facilitated by Randy Shaver, a professor at University of Wisconsin-Madison and Extension dairy nutritionist, and will feature stops at two dairy farms in south-central Wisconsin: Wargo Acres, owned and operated by the Carncross family near Lodi; and Blue Star Dairy, owned and operated by the Meinholz family near Middleton.
Dairy owners and managers who attend will gain new ideas and insights to achieve reproduction goals, optimize calf growth, develop quality genetics, manage high production, and explore different types of stall bedding and comfort.
Space is limited to the first 50 farmers, and the tour includes bus travel, refreshments and lunch. To learn more about the PDPW Dairy Dialogue Day Tours and to register for the Aug. 16 event, visit pdpw.org or call 800-947-7379.
The PDPW Dairy Dialogue Day Tour is an accredited training and offers up to 4.0 Dairy AdvanCE continuing education (CE) credits for each day.
