Planned by dairy women, for dairy women, the Women in Dairy Conference has been offered through the Extension Dairy Team for more than a decade. Designed to have up-to-date content and excellent networking opportunities, this conference is a must-attend for dairy producers and agribusiness professionals.

The keynote speaker, Mary Creek, 2012 Dairy Farm Woman of the Year, is complemented by a panel of women discussing farm diversification. Breakout sessions include:

  • Calf Care
  • Farm Succession Planning: The Role of Family Communication
  • Maintaining Animal Health and Well-Being in a Consumer-Focused Marketplace
  • Records, Budgets, and Cash Flows – Oh My!
  • Using Dairy Technologies

Join us for the reception the evening before with Penn State’s Kerry Kaylegian, Dairy Food Research and Extension Association, who will speak about Value-Added Products and Farm Product Diversification.
