Dairy sales and service professionals who work regularly with producers are invited to participate in a series of April workshops, “Decision Making for Maximizing Profitability”, as part of the Dairy PROS program, a new initiative from the Center for Dairy Excellence. Three workshops are slated for the week of April 19 across Pennsylvania.
Featured speaker Wayne Weiland, Midwest regional manager of Standard Dairy Consulting, will discuss current farm issues and explain how dairy professionals can help producers make effective decisions while evaluating management intervention.
In addition to Weiland’s presentation, Penn State Dairy Alliance educators Virginia Ishler and Tim Beck will present “Take it to the Farm.” They will share income-over-feed cost and cash flow planning tools for agribusiness professionals to help clients manage costs in a volatile market.
Participants in the Dairy PROS workshops will also have an opportunity to share on-farm experiences and build relationships with others facing similar challenges.
The Dairy PROS workshops take place:
- Monday, April 19 in Lancaster, Pa.
- Tuesday, April 20 in Chambersburg, Pa.
- Tuesday, April 20 in Altoona, Pa.
- Wednesday, April 21 in Meadville, Pa.
