Virtual Dairy Day – Thursday January 7, 2021 – 11:30am to 3:30pm Eastern Standard Time

Dairy day is a producer led annual event that has been a part of GBFW since the very first year in 1966! Targeted to the Dairy Cow producers, the purpose of Dairy Day is to provide an opportunity for producers to meet and be educated on the latest technology; discuss pertinent issues, learn about health & nutrition topics and much more! Plus interact and exchange ideas with fellow farmers.  There are two key objectives that the organizing committee strives to acheive for Dairy Day: The information shared will be linked back to the animal.  Organizers also hope that producers can implement at least two ideas after participating in Dairy Day sessions.
