Don't miss this highly anticipated annual program built to help you and your business build resilience. This year, look forward to three days of jam-packed training, including three executive-level tours that will have you thinking about your business in a whole new way.

January 10:
Dr. Allan Gray will kick off the program with interactive discussions along with individual and group exercises to help you identify the objectives, scope and advantages that will provide your dairy with a competitive edge. Get ready to think strategically about how your business can leverage its advantages while staying resilient and flexible. 

January 11:
While Savannah may be known for its history and hauntings, it's also home to some of the country's most innovative, forward-thinking businesses. Get ready for three thought-provoking out-of-industry tours to challenge how you approach business management. Throughout the day, you'll visit with and learn from top execs from the Georgia Ports Authority, JCB and Old Savannah Tours. 

Georgia Ports Authority:
Learn how the nation's single largest and fastest-growing container terminal has accommodated record cargo volumes in the past 24 months and how it plans to stay ahead of even more projected growth.

JCB:
This international company manufactures agricultural-tipping machinery and other construction equipment in 22 plants across six continents. Discover how this family business has become a powerhouse in manufacturing across the globe and continues to find innovative solutions for a variety of industries. 

Old Savannah Tours:
As Savannah's only trolley line owned and operated by locals, experience firsthand how this company has lasted the test of time, continues to reinvent itself and retains energetic team members.

January 12:
On the final day, Dr. David Kohl, PhD, and Dr. Ed Seifried, PhD, will bring together concepts and strategies to help equip you with the knowledge to make the best decisions for your dairy's future. This dynamic duo will take a deep dive into financial, economic and banking trends that will help you better prepare your business for innovation, labor, resources and more.
