Join the PDPW Wisconsin Dairy Tours on Tues., July 17, 2018 to connect directly with fellow dairy owners and their financial consultants to learn what it takes to make a buck in today's dairy climate.
An in-depth roundtable discussion will be bookended by tours to Son-Bow Farms near Spring Valley and Alfalawn Farm near Menomonie. Financial consultants Dave Becker of Dairy Business Consulting Group, and Steve Bodart with Compeer Financial will discuss key factors all dairies can control to optimize efficiencies.
Come prepared to ask questions and talk with dairy owners, managers and other dairy professionals to identify opportunities to improve productivity and sustainability on your farm.
Those who attend will see Son-Bow's nutrient management system that includes reclaiming water, separating solids and composting sand bedding, and Alfalawn's 60-cow rotary parlor including the strategies they've implemented to prepare for the potential of the next generation stepping in.
