You are invited to a full day of dairy at Fair Oaks Farms on Tuesday, March 25th! IDP has worked with Professional Dairy Managers of Pennsylvania (PDMP) and Fair Oaks to put quite an interesting agenda together. The day will begin with registration at 9 AM Central Time. The plans for the day include doing the Fair Oaks Dairy Adventure, Pig Adventure, a meeting with Mike McCloskey and lunch. We will travel to Hidden View Dairy, a farm featuring tunnel ventilation, a 72 cow rotary, and a “hybrid” methane digester as well as a tour to Seven Hills Dairy. We plan to meet back at the Café for a catered dinner featuring Kevin Jones from Ghost Hollow Consulting speaking on the six elements to dairy profitability the top 1% use.
