- Created: Wednesday, 25 June 2014 13:05
IDP is excited to bring another great opportunity for dairy farmers and industry folks who are wanting to expand their horizons and visit some dairy farms! Kentuckiana 2014 will take us to Taylor, Green and Adair Counties in Kentucky! Our friends in Kentucky have put a great tour together, featuring 5 of Kentucky's very best dairies.
IDP has organized bus transportation, leaving Lafayette at 7 AM Eastern Time on Tuesday, July 29, also making a stop in Whiteland at Kelsay's Dairy at 8:30. If needed, depending on registrations, other stops may be added as we head south through Indiana. Remember, some of the very best take-aways from these tours are the conversations on the bus!
The cost is $100 for the first farm/business member and $75 for additional members. The registration fee covers transportation, dinner on July 29 and lunch on July 30.
The Kentuckiana will include an evening dinner and educational program at Taylor County Extension Office. The evening speaker is Dr. Nicola Blackie, a lecturer at Writtle College in England. She will be presenting about the dairy industry in England along with her work on managing lameness in dairy cattle.
Participants are responsible for their own lodging reservations. A special rate has been negotiated at Best Western Campbellsville Inn of $76.49. This rate will be released to the general public on July 20 (just extended!) so make your reservation and ask for the "Dairy Exchange" rate. Call them at 270-465-7001.
