Last Call for Empire Farm Days Dairy Profit Seminars

Joel Hastings

The dairy seminars featuring presentations on money-saving solutions and dairy operation strategies get underway Tuesday, August 6 at Empire Farm Days near Seneca Falls, New York.

Keynote speaker Professor Tom Overton, Director of PRO-DAIRY will talk about how dairy producers can adapt and evolve in the current economic climate.

According to Joel Hastings, Editor & Publisher of DairyBusiness.com, the seminars will feature more, but shorter, presentations, along with a lunch and extra break time in a more intimate setting, to allow farmers an environment to discuss their concerns and receive advice more fully.

 

 

“The overall concept this year will be to present the audience with specific information on money-saving solutions and dairy operation strategies to help dairy producers adapt and evolve in this current economic climate,” explained Hastings.

Here’s the schedule:
