From volatile milk and feed prices to the environment, global marketplace and social responsibility, our industry faces many new challenges and opportunities. Dairy Herd Management wants to know the top five challenges your dairy faces over the next three years. We’re polling producers from across the country to find your top operational priorities. We will share these results, as well as the opinions of industry experts, when the survey is completed.

Each dairy producer who submits his or her operation’s Top 5 Challenges will be entered in a drawing for a Gateway laptop computer to be awarded Dec. 31. You must be a current Dairy Herd Management subscriber to be eligible. To subscribe, follow this link.
