PDPW Debuts World Class Webinars Economic Series
 
DAIRY NEWS – With dairy farmers facing ever changing economic conditions, Professional Dairy Producers® (PDPW) is set to offer the World Class Webinars Series, “Success During an Economic Reset.” The two-part series is presented by Dr. David Kohl and will be held on Wednesdays, June 8 and July 6, 2016 from 12 p.m. noon to 1 p.m. CDT.
 
These two webinars, poised to give dairy men and women ideas and solutions, while dealing with a changing economic time:
  • Position your dairy for economic success, Wednesday, June 8, 12-1 p.m. Global and domestic economies are throwing curve balls to dairy farmers and those that serve them. Dr. Kohl will examine global and domestic trends that will continue to influence the industry and will directly answer ten of today’s most commonly asked questions by dairy farmers.
  • Financial and management strategies in the dairy economic reset, Wednesday, July 6, 12-1 p.m. The current economic challenge for the dairy industry is much different than previous resets in the last decade.  Dr. Kohl will present various tools for producers to utilize in this economically challenging era and will explain key financial metrics for farmers and lenders to strategize for this economic period.  This webinar is pertinent to dairy farmers and those connected to their business.
