Save the date — the 2021 Pennsylvania Dairy Summit is going virtual! During the four-day event on February 8-11, we’re emerging together to find solutions to help our industry advance, adapt, perform, and thrive. With an expert line-up of dynamic speakers, opportunities to get a virtual look at different dairy operations, and other exciting networking opportunities, the virtual Dairy Summit is designed to bring the industry together as we look to the future.
Hosted by the Professional Dairy Managers of Pennsylvania and Center for Dairy Excellence, the annual dairy conference will utilize a virtual conference platform to ensure the program is robust, accessible, educational, and engaging for dairy producers and allied-industry representatives in Pennsylvania and across the nation.
“Bringing the dairy industry together and sharing innovative ideas is the hallmark of the PA Dairy Summit. While we may be emerging together in a different format this year, we have been working to create an experience that is full of practical takeaways, knowledge-sharing, entertainment, and most importantly, a sense of community. The theme of the event is about emerging forward and focusing on the future, not the past, in order to find solutions to help our industry advance, adapt, perform, and thrive.” — Jessica Slaymaker, the 2021 Pennsylvania Dairy Summit chair and a dairy farmer from Tioga County
