Northeast Dairy Management Conference - March 11 & 12th, Syracuse NY presented by Pro-Dairy and Northeast Dairy Producers Association.
Presented by Cornell CALS PRO-DAIRY and Northeast Dairy Producers Association, the Northeast Dairy Management Conference is a dynamic conference for all progressive dairy farmers in the Northeast. This biennial event, previously known as the NEDPA Conference, will continue to be a high-quality program with a slightly different name, yet the same mission – providing the latest information related to current trends and topics in the dairy industry through dynamic and informative sessions to re-energize businesses and improve performance. With the new name, we hope to attract current NEDPA Members as well as encourage all farms in the Northeast to attend.
The theme for this year’s conference is “Focus on the Future” and sessions will feature diverse topics such as on farm technology, protecting your brand, and environmental issues updates as well as several presentations on navigating the changes brought about by the new agricultural labor legislation.
